400,000 secret documents of Wehrmacht, by 160 microfilms, bought by Greece from the National Archives US service in Maryland, as the Greek Minister of Defence recently revealed, have been kept for 15 years in the drawer in the Greek Minister fo Defence, said the credible journalist for Defense, Dimos Verikios on air on Alpha TV NEWS .
In their majority, the files have now been digitalised and show, according to the Deputy Minister of Defense Costas Isychos-, illegal archaeological excavations in the period 1941 -1945 from the German occupators in Greece, mining precious metals and minerals, the destruction of historical monuments, destruction of logistical infrastructure and so on.
Each microfilm containing a brief description on the front page, but not enough information to be able to make a first assessment.
“These documents not only document the historical truth, they are detailed notes, calendars,and reports of the officers of Wehrmachtbericht to their superiors” told the reporters Deputy Minister Isichos.
The material seized by the Americans when they went to Berlin in 1945 is particularly important because as confidentiality contains factual and accurate information that never saw the light of day.
Kostas Isychos is visitin Moscow today , and one of the primare issues to discuss is to open a cooperation line with Kremlin, for more archival material Russia might have available to provide.
