Letter to the Editor: On War Crimes

October 31, 2022

To the Editor:

 

In the war between Russia and the Ukraine, the Russians abducted, and according to the news reports, will abduct even more civilians. They will force them to leave their homes and country and send them to Russia to different locations. These abductions were categorized by the United States, the UN, and Human Rights Watch as ‘war crimes’ and rightfully so!

Here is a question for the Greek government: Greece went through a Civil War in 1946-1949. Over 300,000 people were uprooted and abducted from their homes, villages, and country. They were forced to march into Albania, then relocated to different Iron Curtain Communist countries, such as Hungary, Poland, and Russia. I was one of those people. In addition, the PEDOMAZOMA, the gathering of the children for brainwashing, also took place then. Why then, have the Greek leaderships of past and present refused to acknowledge these atrocities as ‘war crimes’ or even mention them!? This is part of Greek history and it did happen!
