NIKOLAOS KASAPIS was a medical doctor who was educated in Germany and married to FRANGISKI there. When he arrived in Kythera, there was no hospital nor anything resembling a hospital. He convinced the council to allow him to use the bulding where the National Bank of Greece is today in Hora and convert it into a very poor hospital,but still it was a hospital with a brilliant doctor in charge. He performed many operations free of charge and was called "The saviour of Kythera". He also assisted students at the High School in theatrical performanses. A brilliant couple, that offered Kythera so much and became very proud Kytherians.
