What you have here is a story about blood-thirsty communist guerillas who try to impose their vicious authority on a picturesque greek village. It's not history, of course; it's not aa document either. It resembles more the clear anti-communist propaganda, common during the Reagan presidency. I can assure you that Greek communists were rather the victims, having lost the war, forced to flee into exile in the eastern block or staying in Greece, where they were exiled, shot without trial (or after one), their heads being shown in all villages and their relatives persecuted for the next thirty years. All the people who organized the Greek Resistance and fought the Nazi occupation couldn't have grown fangs in practically no time at all: Greece was liberated on October 1944 (=heroes) and the Civil War started on December of the same year (=communist insurgents).
