Letter to the Editor: The Massacre in Kalavryta

To the Editor:

I think something should be done about the massacre in Kalavryta which occurred in 1943. It is so wrong – so many people, including my grandfather (George Liakopoulos), were executed for no reason. The person responsible was a German General named Le Suire [Karl Hans Maximilian von Le Suire]. Le Suire died in his 80s with honors and a statue in his hometown. The Greek government should tell Angela Merkel to take the statue down. It is so wrong to honor a murderer. People suffered and so many still do from losing loved ones. My uncle told me of what they went through but I know he suffered all his life and took it to his grave. It’s so wrong that no one was ever held accountable.

To the Editor: The article of Archdeacon John Chryssavgis defending Archbishop Elpidophoros officiating in the baptism of the children of a gay couple is a strange brew.
