    Overview

    Summary
    Resistance theater in Greece under Nazi occupation was organized by the political and armed wings of the EAM/ELAS resistance movement and operated in the mountains of what was called Free Greece. This work introduces the cultural resistance of over 1000 cultural teams across Greece that mounted over 22,000 performances from 1943-44 and the work of three subsidized troupes that toured the mountain villages and armed camps of Epirus, Thessaly, and western Macedonia. It targets the history of the largest of those troupes and its performances that constitute the largest single source of resistance texts in Free Greece.
