Thassos History: World War 2

   During Axis occupation (1941-1944) Thassos, along with the rest of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace, was under Bulgarian control and suffered from hunger and forced recruitment of young men as slave laborers.


   The Bulgarians planned to annex the territory under their control and closed down schools as a first step towards forced Bulgarization. However, mountainous terrain facilitated small-scale resistance activity.

   But later,the Greek Civil War affected the island in the form of skirmishes and Communist guerilla attacks until 1950, almost a year after the main hostilities were over on the mainland.
