“He has the touch of history / And white hair / Mister Dimitris”. On April 6, the anniversary of the German invasion in Greece during World War 2, Stamatis Kalogeropoulos posted a poem [el] and a song on his blog, Ποίηση κι Αφήγηση (Poetry and Narration), written in memory of 77-year old Dimitris Christoulas, whose public suicide on April 4 in Syntagma square, Athens, opposite the Greek parliament, shocked the country. In a note left behind (translations in several languages here), Christoulas accused the ”occupation government” of eliminating his right to a decent living.
