Ohi Day

Students march in commemoration of Ohi Day-- also known as "Day of the No"-- in the village of Chora, Greece. In 1940, Italy demanded that Greece surrender rather than maintain neutrality in World War II. Then Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas refused, thus aligning Greece with the Allies and bringing the nation into the war.
