ATTENTION EDITORS - IMAGE 11 OF 26 TO ACCOMPANY PICTURE PACKAGE 'TWIN TOWNS'
Marios Fragoulides repairs a shoe at a shop in Oreokastro, a suburb of Thessaloniki in northern Greece, March 7, 2012. Ties between Germany and Greece run deep. More than 300,000 Greeks reside in Germany, making them one of the biggest ethnic communities in the country. Nearly one in ten Greeks has worked, studied or lived in Germany. And roughly two million Germans spend their holidays in Greece every year, more than from any other country. Despite these links, officials from both countries are now realising that grass-roots cooperation between the countries has been virtually non-existent. Only about 30 partnerships between German and Greek towns currently exist, for example, compared to 2,000 German-French pairings. One partnership that has existed for over half a decade is between Oreokastro, a posh but increasingly troubled suburb of Thessaloniki in northern Greece, and Detmold in the west German state of North Rhine Westphalia.
