I am well on the way to completing my book of 20th Century Orthodox martyrs. One of the chapters is devoted to the Orthodox Church in Greece under Nazi occupation. I have enough material for general background including the courageous stand of Archbishop Damaskinos in protecting the Jews from deportation. In spite of his almost being executed, however, the Archbishop was not actually a martyr. I am in urgent need of two or three stories of priests or laypeople who actually gave their lives in defiance of the authorities and because of their Christian beliefs. The stories don’t have to be long or detailed

Can any of my readers a) help me with information on this topic
                                      b) point me to someone who can
                                      c) give me any relevant internet links?

If you are able to help, either post a comment, contact me on Facebook Page (ChrisMooreyBooks). I may be able to give you my email address on request.
