Dedicated to the fighters who fell during WWII, defending their island.
The inscription is the second line from the famous one engraved on the tomb of Leonidas and his 300 valiant soldiers killed during the Battle of Thermopylae, and reads as follows, "Stranger, announce to the Spartans that here
We lie, having fulfilled their orders." (5 years and 2173 days ago)
