The Underground Press during the Greek Civil War

Project description

The role of the pro-communist press during the Greek civil war

In December 1947, the Greek government passed the 'Obligatory Law 509', banning the Communist Party and the pro-communist press. From the law's introduction until the end of the civil war in 1949, pro-communist organisations published more than 130 newspapers and magazines to further their political ideas and deconstruct the anti-communist propaganda. The EU-funded GUNPRESS project will use these newspapers to provide new interpretations of the issues of child abduction and the role of the women during the conflict. The research fellow will compare, for the first time, aspects of the Greek and the Spanish clandestine press and draw upon the example of Spain to discover and highlight new similarities and differences between the two cases.
