Premier Costas Karamanlis (c) views a dilapidated building on the tiny island of Aghios Efstratios in the northern Aegean on Saturday. Communists were exiled to the island from 1947 to the late ’50s as part of a clampdown on left-wing sympathizers. Some 40 communists died in custody there. Karamanlis said a ‘Museum of Democracy’ would be built there to mark their deaths.
