1 FALAGITIS [?] 1936 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF A YOUNG GREEK AS THE FASCIST REVOLUTION OF METAXAS AND THE GREEK NATIONALISTIC RIGHT ARE ON THE MOVE
GREECE HELLAS 1936 Unbound Good+ 
On offer is the unique, original, 1936 Greek manuscript diary handwritten by a young man, we believe, named Falagitis, an EON member we believe, who provides his personal history of the times immediately prior to the notorious '4th of August' Revolution. Over 48 pages of Greek cursive densely written the coverless 6 x 7.5 inch journal- we provide a partial, casual translation of the start - begins simply enough: "18 June Sunday even though we are supposed to go the church with the young people, I did not go as I was sleepy, after the church finished its ceremony then I woke up at the afternoon. At the afternoon, Athena came and after we sat for a while we went for a walk towards the station. However , we decided it was too early for a walk thus we decided to go to aunt Maria and around evening we left went to the station, came home, ate and made cheesebread (me, Teta and Athena) then we went again to the aunt. Then we went to the uncle Nigopon, to join our walk, in the beginning we were alone then he came and with his company we went to the bakery story where he treated us. After we sat enough, among many people who sat in all the centrers around the city, we left for home with Teta while the uncle left with Athina." In a tight cursive hand the writer details life at the time. Some passages appear more quickly written; certainly a detailed translation is required. Collectors and historians will appreciate this document as a unique relic of a critical political event in pre-World War II Greece. Later than Hitler's manipulations in the early 1930s, the August 4th Revolution was a parallel political movement of the Greek Nationalistic Right and not dissimilar than Hitler or Mussolini in Italy. [But as with most clones this government's issue was weaker and lasted only 4 years.] We believe this diary is evidential to the importance the Regime put indoctrinating the youth of the culture to the nationalistic debate. From an online source we learn with regard to: "The role of youth: the EON brought together youths of all economic and social strata into one single body. Boys' education emphasized discipline and physical training, while girls were taught to become supportive wives and caring mothers to breed a stronger, healthier new generation. The EON published a fortnight magazine called Neolaia (Greek for "Youth"), which had much influence both in schools and in higher education. One online source provides background: The 4th of August Regime commonly known as the Metaxas Regime which was an authoritarian regime under the leadership of General Ioannis Metaxas that ruled Greece from 1936 to 1941. There is some debate over how the regime relates to other authoritarian regimes of the era: those of Franco's Spain, Italian Fascism, and German Nazism. Richard Clogg argues that while the regime had "superficial trappings of Fascism" and Metaxas "did not disguise his admiration for Nazism and Fascism", it is "more correctly categorised as paternalist-authoritarian rather than fascist". Overall G+.
