Nazis Infect Greece; Action Demanded by Leading Newspapers

Download PDF for this date

Nazi Germany is spending ten million drachmas for Nazi propaganda in Greece, the leading Greek newspapers, Elephteros, Anthropos and Acropolis, disclosed today. The papers expressed indignation that Kurdorfer, official Nazi agent in Athens, is impudently and openly carrying on propaganda for the establishment of a dictatorship in Greece and interfering with the internal affairs of the country. His immediate expulsion was demanded by both newspapers.

Nazi money is being used in Greece for corrupting the press in favor of the Nazis and for financing the new Nazi organization called “OEKK.” The emblem of the Greek Nazis is a cross above the four letters. Loverdos, brother of the present Minister of Finance, is head of the Greek Nazi organization.
