Displacements during the greek civil war through the press: the case of the newspaper Embros (1946-1949) (Bachelor thesis)

Μπλεμπιτζάκη, Δόμνα/ Blebitzaki, Domna

Based on recent historiography on the Greek Civil War as well as on relevant articles featured in the newspaper Embros this dissertation presents the events of the Greek Civil War (1946- 1949), a very turbulent period in the context of Greek history, which has attracted the historians’ interest relatively recently. More specifically, this dissertation looks into how the policies implemented by both rivals as regarded the movement of the population from the countryside to the urban centers were presented in the newspaper Embros. A random sample of 450 issues of the newspaper was used so as investigate the following issues: the “bandit stricken” populations, the political refugees, the political detainees, and the children who were displaced from their villages of origin and sent to Childtowns. The dissertation concludes that there is considerable disparity between the academic literature on the Greek Civil War and the pro-government Press of the period and points that the Press played a decisive role in the construction of the citizens’ loyalty (nomimofrosini) at a time when the outcome of the Civil War was at stake
