Cretan Resistance and SOE on Crete Presentation - You are Invited


The Battle of Crete and Greece Commemorative Council and Melbourne's Greek Centre are proud to bring to Melbourne a unique presentation by British-based author and historian Chris White on his research into the Cretan Resistance and SOE in WW2.
In his presentation, Chris will outline his research into the story of the resistance to German occupation on Crete during WW2, including the experience of the British SOE agents and the famous kidnapping of the German General Kreipe in 1944.
The presentation will feature photographs from the time - many rarely seen before - as well as Chris' own taken as part of his identification of the locations used by the resistance and SOE.
There will be an opportunity afterwards for attendees to meet with Chris to discuss specific villages and areas and to consider some of the many photographs taken on Crete in WW2 in his collection.
A unique presentation not to be missed.
