Die Flucht (Ende des 5. Kapitels)

Ich wollte allen LeserInnen Ante Cilgas Buch in den letzten Wochen die Gelegenheit geben, dass bisher auf deutsch unveröffentlichte Kapitel direkt als ersten Beitrag zu finden.

Nach dieser längeren Pause, werde ich nun weiterschreiten mit der Veröffentlichung von Agis Stinas Biografie.

Endlich die Flucht, während viele Genossen erschossen wurden. Mit diesem Absatz endet der letzte Abschnitt des 5. Kapitels.

In Evia

In mid-July we were on our way to the railway station, around seventy political prisoners, tied up and escorted by a crowd of gendarmes.

We retrieved them as best we could and wore them crumpled and sopping wet.
