OXI Day: 28 October 1940 "Heroes fight like Greeks..."

 Heroes fight like Greeks...

"Until now we used to say that the Greeks fight like heroes.
Now we shall say: The heroes fight like Greeks."
Sir Winston  Churchill - Prime Minister United Kingdom
(From a speech he delivered from the BBC in the first days of the  Greco-Italian war)


In 2011, Some of our most prominent Greek Americans decided it was time to get the story of Greece's heroism out to the world. This superb video, created by The Washington OXI Day Foundation, founded by Andrew Manatos, tells the story of Greece's heroism in adversity. Its strength against all odds and its pivotal role in the developments of the Second World war.
Historian Alexander Kitroeff, US Congressmen John Sarbanes and Gus Bilirakis, and Andrew Manatos himself, tell the wonderful story of OXI Day, exactly as it should be told...

Many know that Greece created democracy, 
but few know that it also saved it...
Until now.

The Washington Oxi Day Foundation is a nonprofit, 501c3 organization dedicated to informing American policymakers and the public about the profound role Greece played in bringing about the outcome of World War II and celebrating modern day heroes who exhibit the same courage as the Greeks did in continuing to fight to preserve and promote freedom and democracy around the world.
