Jack Kakis

Postwar photograph of partisan Jack Kakis in Arta, Greece, 1950.

After the German occupation of Greece, Jack escaped from a labor camp. He returned to Athens where he became involved with the underground movement, bombing factories, and writing anti-German slogans on the city streets at night. Eventually he joined the National Liberation Front, or EAM, and took to the mountains.
