  • [01] Papoulias attends events commemorating Kommeno wartime massacre

    President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias attended events in the northwestern village of Kommeno, Arta prefecture, on Tuesday commemorating the tragic 62nd anniversary of the community's destruction by Nazi occupation forces in 1943.

    "The list of Greek villages burned by the Nazis is huge; thousands of victims -- men, women, children, all civilians -- were butchered in the name of the most horrific absurdity ever known by mankind: Nazism."

    According to wartime records, 317 people, including 97 children, were executed by occupation forces in the early morning hours of Aug. 16, 1943.
