Tribute to the 43 NSW victims of the Bali bombing, including Greek Australian sisters Dimitra and Elizabeth Kotronakis.
On the thirteen anniversary of the bombing that killed 202 people, including 88 Australians.
The Kotronakis sisters were in Bali with their newly-married sister, Maria, and her new husband Kosta, when they were killed in the attacks on popular night-spots in Kuta.
The Age reported in 2003 that the Kotronakis sisters had just come from the 300-person Greek Orthodox wedding in Blacktown, where they were Maria’s bridesmaids.
Also killed in the attack was the third bridesmaid, cousin Christina Betmalik, as well as another cousin, Louiza Zervos, who had joined the bridal party for the holiday.
