"The man with the carnation": 64 years since the execution of communist hero Nikos Beloyannis
"Beloyannis instructs us one more time,how to live and how to die.
With just one carnation he unlocked all of immortality.With just one smile he brightened the world so darkness can never fall. Good morning comrades
Good morning sun
Good morning Beloyannis".
- Yannis Ritsos, Poem "Man with the Carnation".
