The plot thickens further. Just got this comment:

I do not know about the church, but I have this postcard since before 1974.

Well, even if the post card is older than 1974 (which I believe) they were able to produce a photo montage of this architectural model of a church.
It looks a bit similar to the Agios Georgios church recently built at Stroumpi.

What I recognize on this post card are the buildings in the foreground which are gone nowadays and were situated opposite of the concentration camp. Further it is easy to see the mountains with Kathikas, old Theletra and the hill top where Droushia lays. Between the Turkish looking buildings in the foreground and the mountains there is no any church, except the Theletra church, which would look different anyhow.
