Synopsis

What makes a traitor? Are the terms collaborator and traitor mutually exclusive?

This lecture looks at the multi-faceted levels of co-operation afforded to Nazi occupying forces in Greece by Greek nationals, during the Secon World War, each for their own diverse reasons.

Ultimately, what emerges is a sub-text of a society at war with itself, while concurrently enduring the occupation of aggressor, and not above utilising the resources of the aggressor in order to promote a particular vision of just how Greek society should be.
