(In December 1916, 150,000 Serb soldiers cross Serbia and Albania and arrive in Corfu, where a large part of them are established on Vidos. The bad living and hygiene conditions, as well as the winter, claim the lives of most of them. There are thirty thousand Serb soldiers resting in the land of Vidos)

On Vidos island there is the restored historic church of Agios Stephanos , which is connected to the acceptance of the Christian faith in Corfu, since this is the place which housed for the first time the Saints Jason and Sosipater , who preached the Christian faith to the Corfiot people in 80 AD .
