When the news about her parents came [погибли в землетрясении], she was filled with a black hatred for Greece. She wanted to leave it then, never to return. Like so many Greeks. And like so many Greeks she never accepted her exile. This is the cost of being born in the most beautiful and the most cruel country in the world.

In 1892 this Greek had tragic news. His eldest brother and his wife had been killed in an earthquake over the mountains there on the other side of Peloponnesus. Погуглил, ничего внятного не нашел.
А чего вымышлять, там же каждый день то или иное землетрясение.
