Today the Greek people celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Oxi Day

OXI Day commemorates the day that Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas rejected the ultimatum given by Italian dictator, Benito Mussolini, on October 28, 1940. 

The ultimatum changed everything and Greece turned out to be a strong force against the Germans and Italians, facilitating the Allies’ regaining of Albania.

Happy Anniversary to all people that celebrate the 28th of October.
