The Agony of Greek Jews, 1940-1945
Stanford University Press

From the time it was invaded by the Axis up to the Occupation, Greece fought for almost seven months during World War II. After defeating Italy in the first stages (November 1940 through February 1941), the mainland was overrun by Germany during the invasion of April 1941. By the end of May 1941, the Axis had full control of Crete. The onset of World War II in Greece in the predawn hours of October 28, 1940 was unwanted but not unexpected. Both Allied and Axis countries pursued Greece as a theater of operations or occupation. This chapter examines the military role of the Jews in Greece from October 1940 to June 1941, along with the vicissitudes of occupation during the period preceding the first stages of the Nazis' implementation of their Final Solution of the Jewish Question.
