After ninety years on this Earth, my father passed away in March of this year. Here, I share the remarkable life of Arthur Alimonos as he tells it, beginning in 1933 in the little-known village of Magoula, Greece.

In the following years, he experienced poverty, hunger, the Nazi capture of his family, and the violence of Communist radicals.
