Greece's Lost Children
« on: Friday, 11 February, 2022 @ 23:25:17 »
Longer article than most, here's the opening chapters from a dark and little known side of Greece's history:

Greeceā€™s Lost Children of the Cold War

In 1960, I was a high school junior in Argostoli, Cephalonia, a Greek island in the Ionian Sea between Greece and Italy. In addition to my regular classes in science and humanities, I was also learning English. I had decided that, at the end of my senior year, I would leave Cephalonia and Greece for the United States for a college education.

My years in high school, 1956-1961, were the happiest in my life. I was thoroughly innocent of the dangers of the raging Cold War, though I had vague memories of the Greek Civil War, 1946-1949, from stories I heard.
