Greece must be saved! An appeal coming from India during WW2

WW2, WW2 in Greece, WW2 Wrecks

By Pierre Kosmidis

The courageous struggle of Greece against the Italians and the Germans in 1940-41 was admired from the USA to India, as it set an example of resistance against fascism and nazism in the early years of WW2, when the eventual Allied victory seemed all but certain.


In that context and following the triple Occupation of Greece by Germany, Italy and Bulgaria, which resulted in endless deaths, crimes against humanity, the destruction of the country and a widespread famine that virtually annihilated thousands of children, many efforts to help the Greeks were organised by relief funds across the free world.

One such Relief Fund was organised in India and a leaflet titled “GREECE MUST BE SAVED!” urged people to contribute through the International Red Cross.
