“Shortly after midnight, on 29th September, George Varoufakis died. He was born in Cairo, Egypt in June 1925 where he finished his high school studies at the Ambetio School. After graduating, he worked at a branch of a Greek bank in Cairo before coming to Athens in 1946 to enrol in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Athens
Shortly before the outbreak of the second Greek civil war (1946-9), he went to the Dean’s Office, representing his students union, to protest against an increase in tuition fees at a time students were facing starvation. On his way out he was arrested by secret police.
Refusing to sign the infamous ‘declaration of denouncing communism’, he was imprisoned in Athens and later exiled to the Makronisos prison camp – a massive, open-air torture chamber.
