Church of Agios Nikolaos

Distomo Greece

Greek Orthodox

Every church service in Distomo remembers the victims of the worst Nazi atrocity in Greece, the Distomo massacre. 218 villagers were killed in a rampage of killing, looting and rape, shooting and bayoneting babies and whole families. The massacre was in reprisal for Greek partisan attacks. The priest, who was decapitated, was one of the victims.
