Distomo Remembers 1944 Nazi Massacre


June 10 was a somber day in the Greek village of Distomo, the 69th anniversary of the massacre of most of its citizens by Nazis in a reprisal raid.

On that day in 1944, an SS phalanx, along with other troops of German soldiers were attacked in Katavothra, a town in Thesprotia, Greece, by guerillas of the Greek People’s Liberation Army (ELAS) and pulled back after heavy losses.

To take revenge, the Germans invaded Distomo, a town in western Boeotia, Greece. Under the command of Hans Zampel, the Nazis executed 218  men, women, elderly people, even infants. Women were raped before murdered, houses were burnt down as the villagers fell victim to a murderous rage.


The Municipality of Distomo-Arachova-Antikyra organized memorial events that began on June 8. Alexis Tsipras, leader of the major Greek opposition party Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) and Dimitris Koutsoumpas, Secretary General of the Greek Communist party KKE, said they would participate in events.

Despite a ruling by a Greek court that compensation was due, none has ever been received and no soldier or officer was ever held responsible for one of the worst atrocities of WWII.


  1. In a 1987 article of the Golden Dawn magazine, its editor Michaloliakos wrote an article with title “Hitler for 1000 years” where he supports Nazism and white supremacy. Specifically he wrote “We are the faithful soldiers of the National Socialist idea and nothing else” and “[…] WE EXIST, and continue the battle, the battle for the final victory of our race”. He ends the article by writing “1987, 42 years later, with our thought and soul given to the last great battle, with our thought and soul given to the black and red banners, with our thought and soul given to the memory of our great Leader, we raise our right hand up, we salute the Sun and with the courage, that is compelled by our military honor and our National Socialist duty we shout full of passion, faith to the future and our visions: HEIL HITLER!”. Furthermore he capitalizes the pronouns referring to Hitler (“by Himself”, “His people”).


  2. Διαβάζουμε: «20 Απριλίου 1889. 121 χρόνια έχουν παρέλθει από τη γέννηση του

    ανθρώπου που επηρέασε όσο κανείς άλλος τη νεότερη παγκόσμια ιστορία. Ο Αδόλφος Χίτλερ αποτελεί δίχως αμφιβολία τη μεγαλύτερη φυσιογνωμία του 20ου αιώνα. Το πρόσωπο του συγκεντρώνει μοναδικά και απόλυτα μίσος και αγάπη από εχθρούς και υποστηρικτές αντίστοιχα. Ιδιαιτέρως χαρισματικός άνθρωπος κατόρθωσε την εκ του μηδενός ανάδειξή του στο ύπατο αξίωμα της Γερμανίας. Εμπνευσμένος από τα ιδεώδη της Φυλής, συνοδοιπόρος του αρχαίου ελληνικού πνεύματος έδωσε μάχη μέχρις εσχάτων ενάντια σε μια παγκόσμια τάξη αποσκοπούσα στην συντριβή του ανθρώπου μέσω της αμείλικτης μαζοποίησης προερχόμενη από την ηθική απαξίωση, τη διαγραφή της συλλογικής μνήμης των εθνών, τον γκρίζο ολοκληρωτισμό, την ολοκληρωτική αποχαύνωση. Η μάχη μπορεί να χάθηκε, ο άνθρωπος μπορεί να έπεσε άλλα η Ιδέα, αθάνατη, φωτίζει το μονοπάτι της ελευθερίας. Ο Αδόλφος Χίτλερ μετουσιώθηκε σε αρχετυπική εικόνα για τον εν συνειδήσει Λευκό άνθρωπο. Η μνήμη του δεν μπορεί παρά να υπενθυμίζει το χρέος προς τη Φυλή και το άνευ αναστολών δόσιμο στον αγώνα υπέρ αυτής.»


  3. My father comes from the same region and as far as he is concerned, both the KKE and Syriza should be banned from attending anything… along with Golden Dawn. As I hear him and other relations tell of how they suffered and how they struggled to survive. I agree with his wanting all this trash to keep away. BUT! While the bastards may be dead, how about a Hellenic Court prosecuting the Nazis? Great for morale. Upsetting to Merkel.

  4. After 2 World Wars & 30 million people murdered and 1/2 million slaughtered in Greece, why would anyone think the German mentality has changed? It’s only been 70 years and they are at it again now destroying Europe in a new kind of ‘Biltzkrieg’ with “Financial Weapons of Mass Destruction”…

    They are also selling military weapons on the open world market and training other countries armies and Police like they have done in Greece, making them brutal …Why is the US & EU Allowing this to happen?

    The Germans must be reigned in again before it’s too late!

  5. Golden Dawn members were recently accused by the manipulative Marxist media of invading Nikaia hospital with clubs and helmets. Here is a picture of the Golden Dawn members entering Nikaia hospital. Where are the clubs and helmets? Lying manipulative Marxist scum! The Greek people have awoken and Golden Dawn is going from strength to strength.
