I ámyna kai i ptósi tis Elládas 1940 - 1941

By Carr, John C.

Athens: Psychogios, 2014. Translation of "The Defense and Fall of Greece 1940 - 1941 " by by Ioannis Chalazias . On 28 October 1940, Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas said "NO" to Mussolini's provocative ultimatum, so the Italian forces invaded Greece through Albania. This attack was the result of Mussolini's desire to make an easy victory to compete with Hitler, who quickly won France. In theory, the Greek army did not have the proper equipment nor was it prepared for such a conflict, but Mussolini had underestimated the determination of the soldiers fighting for their homeland. Within a few weeks, the Italian army was forced to retreat, and the Greeks entered Albania. The same end result was the new Italian assault in March 1941, and Hitler intervened to save his ally. The Germans invaded Greece via Bulgaria on 6 April. The Greeks, with the help of the British forces, resisted land, sea and air, but were overthrown by the much higher German army. Despite the last attempt by the Australian and New Zealand soldiers on the Thermopylon Strait, Athens fell on April 27 and the British withdrew 50,000 soldiers from Crete. John Car, through this exceptional defense time of Greece, without underestimating British aid, is based on Greek sources and emphasizes the battles to the sacrifice of the Greeks and their participation in the struggle against fascism. 402p. illus.index. 1st Greek Edition. French Wraps. New Book from Greece.

Athens - Auschwitz (Trans. Nikis Stavroulakis)

By Sevillias, Errikos (Trans. Nikis Stavroulakis

Athens: Lycabettus Press, 1983. (New - will be sent to you direct from the publisher in Greece) Moving personal testimony of the way the Jews were deported from Greece to concentration camps during the Nazi occupation. Errikos Sevillias was born in Athens in 1901 into a Sephardic family. He learned how to work in leather as a child and opened his own leather workshop when he was 16. From 1919 until 1923 he served in the Greek army, for three years fighting in Asia Minor. After the war he reopened his workshop, married, and had a daughter. Life, as he writes, "went along well" until he experienced "an inexplicable and unexpected great adventure," meaning Auschwitz. Errikos Sevillias was killed in Athens by a motorcycle in 1974, when he was 73 years old. The manuscript of this book was found among his papers after he died. He describes the appalling events at Auschwitz with extraordinary calm, saying merely that he couldn't understand "what they wanted in doing such an unjust and evil thing." His simple statements of events give the clearest possible image of the indescribable. The manuscript was translated by Nikos Stavroulakis, who also has provided an extremely useful historical outline of the Jewish presence in Greece with a description of the occupation and final solution. 125 pages, black and white photographs, hardback.. 1st Greek Ed.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good, Slight Chips. Illus. by Tr. Nikos Stavroulakis.
