Women & the Greek Resistance - Greek Surnames



I just read New Voices in the Nation: Women and the Greek Resistance, 1941-1964 (Wilder House Series in Politics, History, and Culture by Janet Hart, published in 1996 by Cornell University Press. I was able to get this book through my local Inter-library Loan program, but if you wish to purchase a used copy you can obtain one through Amazon.com

I was most interested in the interviews with women who had been in the resistance, ex-prisoners, and their family members. Explore why these women got involved in the Resistance, what was expected of them, how they and their children survived in prison.

You can read a review of the book by Thanasis D. Sfikas online at Project Muse.

Below you will find 95 Greek names that are mentioned in the book. As usual, good luck with your Greek family genealogy research.
