Rare footage - German occupation of Greece 1941-44
I originally saw these videos a few weeks ago, but hesitated to post a link to them because of their disturbing, graphic images. I have, however, decided to post them due to their historical significance for those of us that had relatives who lived through, or died during, the German occupation of Greece.
Before watching, let me again warn you that the content is quite disturbing.
"Rare footage from the days of the German occupation of Greece )1941-44) as captured by Greek Army Officer Angelos Papanastasiou. Directed by Peter Forgacs, Hungarian independent documentary filmmaker."

Good luck with your Greek family history research.
