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.
