Macedonian War MemorialPrint Page Print this page

War Memorial to Macedonians who died between 1940 and 1949.

After World War Two, internal Greek quarrels led to the outbreak of the Greek Civil War between 1946 and 1949. Northern Greece (Macedonia, Thrace, Epirus) because of its mountainous terrain and common borders with the Communist Balkan countries, became the center of the conflict. The fighting was most destructive in western and central Macedonia, and a large number of citizens fled the war zone and moved to the big cities, forming a mass of refugees.
