This week on Dialogos Radio, the Dialogos Interview Series will be featuring a groundbreaking and exclusive interview on a topic which has rarely been discussed openly in Greece. On our program this week, we will be interviewing longtime ABC News and National Public Radio journalist Kati Marton, author of "The Polk Conspiracy: Murder and Cover-Up in the Case of CBS News Correspondent George Polk." This book presents the true story behind the murder of journalist George Polk in Greece in 1948, in the midst of the country's civil war, and the cover-up which followed, by the right-wing government of Greece at the time, with the collaboration of the intelligence agencies of the United States and Britain.
This book was banned in Greece and has never circulated, and in this week's interview, Marton will share more details about who George Polk was, why his reporting was considered troublesome in Greece, the United States, and in Britain, and she will reveal the true circumstances behind Polk's murder and the subsequent cover-up which followed. She will share many details from the investigation which she conducted, as well as explain why the book remains censored in Greece today. Marton will also discuss the new release of "The Polk Conspiracy" as an e-book, as part of the "Forbidden Bookshelf" series.
In addition to this week's interview, we will also feature our commentary of the week segment, as well as a special tribute to musician Lakis Papadopoulos.
