The Improbable Heroine: Lela Karayanni and the British Secret Services in World War II Greece

Sunday, March 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

Stylianos Perrakis, Concordia University

Lela Karayanni was a Greek resistance fighter during World War II. A wife and mother of seven children, she had no previous experience in politics or military affairs.  Working with British intelligence, she built a local organization which engaged in espionage, sabotaged German targets, and assisted in the escape of Allied prisoners-of-war.   Professor Stylianos Perrakis will give a presentation about his 2022 book titled The Improbable Heroine: Lela Karayanni and the British Secret Services in World War II Greece (DeGruyter, 2022).
