Thessaly, Greece, 1942-1944. Greek kids joined the resistance against the Axis Triple occupation of the country. They were organized in "Aetopoula" (i.e. Young Eagles) affiliated to EAM (i.e. National Liberation Front). They mostly served carrying messages to resistants. Here, four Aetopoula, show the marks or torture by the German occupation forces at Thessaly, perhaps in 1944. They were released because the Germans couldn't break them & spared their lives.

Manolis Glezos and Apostolos Santas climbed on the Acropolis on May 30, 1941 and tore down the swastika, which had been there since April 27, 1941, when the Nazi forces had entered Athens. It was one of the first resistance acts and inspired not only the Greeks, but all subjected people, to resist against the occupation, establishing both as international anti-Nazi heroes. The Nazi regime responded by sentencing Glezos and Santas to death in absentia.
