Forget about the Greek-German enmity. There was a time where Greeks and Germans were very good friends. Just look at these images of Greeks in the countryside welcoming the Wehrmacht as it enters Greece, 76 years ago, in April 1941.
There is a number of similarities between two of Europe’s most notorious collaborationists: Vidkun Quisling from Norway and Ioannis Rallis from Greece. Both stepped in to collaborate with Nazi Germany, and both did so to safeguard their countries. They both led the government in their respective countries, and both were tried by postwar authorities.
On their personal lifes there were also similarities: Both were married twice: Vidkun Quisling with Alexandra Andreevna Voronina and Maria Vasilijevna. Ioannis Rallis with Aspasia Kyriakouli Mavromichali and his second spouse was Zaira Theotoki.
Also, both of them died behind bars: Quisling died at the Akershus Fortress, Oslo, while Rallis died at the Averof Prison, Athens. And both of them died in October: Quisling died in 24 October in 1945, while Rallis died in 26 October 1946.
Here is some more about Vidkun Quisling.

As is done traditionally every January, the Golden Dawn movement in Greece has celebrated the Imia March. Here are some pictures from this spectacular demonstration sweeping the streets of Athens in the winter freezing night.
All of our support for the Greek police, which defends Civilization on Europe’s border. They perform a heroic resistance against the coming hordes from the East. They are the new Spartans, no doubt.
