The only honour and justification for the dead victims of this Nazi atrocity is the constant vigilance and resistance against every attempt to revive fascist and Nazi formations in our country and in Europe. The protection of democracy, the defence of freedom, and our persistence in the struggle for German reparations for this crime can never be written off." Later, Sakellaropoulou visited Osios Loukas Monastery.
