Aris Velouchiotis, a communist chieftain in the mountains of Greece, poses during the Nazi occupation. A journalist in civilian life, Aris was the leader of the Black Berets, communist thugs with a long string of atrocities to their credit. Note the ceremonial dagger carried by Greek Army cadets for the duration of their studies at the Military Academy. Aris apparently liked the visual effect.
