Every 28 October, Greeks all over the world celebrate 'OXI Day', the 'no' to fascism voiced on 28 October 1940. The national celebration commemorates Greece's heroic stance during WWII, which is believed to have changed the course of the war and the course of modern history, and to have become a lesson of the universal values of freedom, justice and equality.
