COMMEMORATIVE SET OF STAMPS “ANNIVERSARIES-EVENTS” - The Battle of Keratsini Power Station
Πέμπτη, 19 Οκτωβρίου 2017

The Battle of the Power Station was the last conflict with the occupiers before the liberation of Athens and Piraeus, and the most iconic act of resistance protecting the infrastructure of a public utility. The Athens-Piraeus electric company paid tribute to those who lost their lives by commissioning the sculptor Christos Kapralos to create the Memorial to the Fallen in the Battle of the Power Station, which was erected in its grounds in 1948. It stands there to this day.

The set was created in partnership with the Public Power Corporation, as part of the management’s decision to make 13 October the company’s official day of commemoration of the Battle of the Power Station, and to organise an exhibition entitled ‘How the power station was saved… A battle at the heart of the Liberation’ (Agios Georgios steam-electric power station, Keratsini, 12 October 2017 – 31 January 2018) under the auspices of His Excellency the President of the Hellenic Republic, Mr Prokopios Pavlopoulos.
