The President of the Hellenic Republic, Prokopis Pavlopoulos visited Kalavryta on Thursday on occasion of the 75th anniversary of the “Kalavryta massacre” commemorating the victims from the atrocities committed by Nazi occupying forces during the Second World War.

During his speech, Pavlopoulos cautioned that we should not be remiss about the dangers of groups emerging across Europe today adopting similar repulsive ideologies.
