Overview

This memoir is the story of Athena Mihos Psyhogios Henderson, arrested in 1971 attempting to free Alekos Panagoulis from Boyati Military Prison in Athens, Greece. Her trial was covered around the world by the international press because Alekos Panagoulis was the most famous political prisoner of the Junta, the military dictatorship then in control of Greece, imprisoned for his failed attempt to assassinate the leader of the dictatorship, Colonel Yiorgios Papadopoulos, and because one of her co-conspirators in the plot to free Alekos was Lady Amalia Fleming, the widow of Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of penicillin and the winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine.
