April 21, 1967: A Date Most Greeks Want to Forget

For the army colonels who overthrew the government and established a seven-year cruel dictatorship, April 21, 1967 was the day of the Revolution and the rebirth of the Greek Nation. For most Greeks though, it is a date they want to forget.

For the people who were jailed and tortured, it is a date that brings back dark memories and nightmares, even after half a century. The same applies for the families of those who were killed by the junta.
