TAGS: History , Literature , Obituary The death in February of Greek writer Alki Zei, at the age of 97, closes not only a life of distinguished authorship but also a period of Greek history which is about to come under review. The fact that Turkey is itself due to celebrate the centenary of the modern republic in is a salutary reminder that the entire region owes its political status to the events from the First Balkan War to Zei grew up partly on the island of Samos, where her mother was from and where many of the Anatolian refugees found shelter.

Today, it is the tragic site of confrontation between Greek citizens and their own security forces, as this new catastrophe emanating from Anatolia unfolds. The advent of the junta in sent her away again, to Paris. Zei, as a committed socialist, had no place in post-war Greece, when many on the Left were condemned to internal exile in prison camps on the islands. Its success highlighted the poverty of statecraft within both New Democracy and PASOK, rather than any innate ideological merit, but it broke the cozy mold of Greek politics.

Today, SYRIZA is publicly licking its wounds after its failure to solve not only the economic and refugee crises but to heal the self-inflicted injuries of history. But Kyriakos Mitsotakis is no better fitted to take on that role: He may contain and cover up the problems, but he cannot eradicate them. He, too, is a prisoner of history. In tearing apart the political themes of the Greek resistance to the Nazis, the civil war and the junta, the novel also exposes the tensions and torsions of modern Greece, which are the legacy of its history.

In a country about to celebrate the bicentenary of its independence, the emotional and ethical canvas is spattered with the consciences of resistance and dissidence. Today we have a civil crisis where Greek police shoot tear gas and stun grenades at their fellow citizens on the eastern islands. Many Greeks take heart from the fact that the former head of the supreme court, Katerina Sakellaropoulou, was made president this year.

She joins a number of women who, like Zei, are distinguished for their unrelenting honesty, clarity and wisdom: women of the caliber of novelists Eugenia Fakinou, Maro Douka and Ioanna Karystiani herself a potential candidate for the presidency in In recent years the grandchildren of the Anatolian refugees, empathizing with the experience of the new seekers of asylum from war and terror, welcomed the arrivals.

A greater example of humanitarian compassion can hardly be imagined. Xenophilia is far stronger than xenophobia, but these days Greece has become xenophobic toward its own people — strangers to themselves. Or, as in the case of TrainOSE, sold to foreigners.
