"Starvation Recipes" or "Recipes of occupied (by Nazi) Greece" is a well documented work that describes the life and the diet of Athenians (Athens is the capital of Greece) during the occupation.
Nazi brought famine (among death, etc) to occupied Greeks who had to improvise in order to escape death from hunger.
The newspaper of that time used to publish "Starvation Recipes" (as it's the book's title in Greece).
