Commemorative Set of Stamps "75th anniversary of the founding of EAM"
Παρασκευή, 19 Φεβρουαρίου 2016

The National Liberation Front (EAM) was founded on 27 September 1941 in occupied Athens. The founding declaration was agreed and signed by Lefteris Apostolou from the Communist Part of Greece (KKE), Christos Chomenidis from the Socialist Party of Greece (SKE), Ilias Tsirimokos from the Union of Popular Democracy (ELD) and Apostolos Voyiatzis from the Agricultural Party of Greece (AKE).

One and a half million Greeks rallied to EAM during the German occupation. It was the first time in Greece that such huge swathes of the population, numbering millions of fighters, had united under the flag of a single patriotic liberation organisation.

Hellenic Post is marking the 75th anniversary of the founding of EAM with a Commemorative Set of Stamps featuring five fighters from the National Liberation Front, four of whom are still alive.
