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.

George A. Liakopoulos

To the Editor:   Due to indisposition I stayed at home last Sunday and watched the Divine Liturgy from 10 o'clock until almost 12.
