The Forgotten War

I happened to catch part of this Saturday morning. After the Communists were defeated in 1949 in the civil war in Greece, some of the children of their partisans found refuge in various countries in Eastern Europe. Eventually, some returned to Greece - to villages where some of the practices they picked up, like brushing teeth and wearing nice clothes, were regarded as outlandish. (Unfinished Business , BBC Radio 4, 27 Nov )
