Historical Walks: Tortures of Junta Era – Victims and perpetrators | 20 Apr. 2024

An episode about the grim anniversary of April 21st and everything we should not forget.

As new research and publications shed light on this black page of Greece’s history, Professor at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens Mr. Vangelis Karamanolakis talks about the dead and wounded of the junta. How was the dictatorship of the colonels imposed? Mass arrests, military courts, imprisonment and cruel torture. Who did the dirty work and what really happened to the regime’s torturers? Has justice been served?

Historical Walks”, ERT’s award-winning show, returns to the radio of Voice of Greece. Marilena Katsimi and her guests take you on a tour of Greece and the world, presenting topics from both contemporary history and the historicity of current issues. The show, with speakers who are recognized scientists, attempts to contribute to the promotion and demystification of difficult and often deliberately forgotten historical topics and to promote public debate.
