Fodor's Review

If you've read the 1966 novel Z by Vassilis Vassilikos (or seen the 1969 Costas-Gavras film about the murder of Lambrakis, a leftist member of Parliament, by rightists in 1963), this monument is especially moving. The murder precipitated the events leading to the 1967–74 dictatorship of the colonels. A dramatic bronze head and arm, above which flutters a sculpted dove, marks the spot.
