Celebrating OXI Courage

Past & Present in the Spirit of OXI Day

OUR MISSION
Many know that Greece created democracy, but few know that it also saved it… Until now

The Washington Oxi Day Foundation is a nonprofit, 501c3 organization dedicated to:

–informing American policymakers and the public about the profound role Greece played in bringing about the outcome of World War II and;

–celebrating modern day heroes who exhibit the same David vs. Goliath #OXIcourage as the Greeks did in fighting to preserve and promote freedom and democracy around the world.

WORLD LEADERS HIGHLIGHT OXI COURAGE

“If there had not been the virtue and courage of the Greeks, we do not know which the outcome of World War II would have been.”

Winston Churchill

When the entire world had lost all hope, the Greek people dared to question the invincibility of the German monster.

President Franklin Roosevelt

“Hence, we will not say that Greeks fight like heroes, but that heroes fight like Greeks.”

Winston Churchill

“I have taken up my cross. I spoke to the Lord, and made up my mind to save as many Jewish souls as possible.”

Archbishop Damaskinos of Greece

“The Greeks delayed by two or more vital months the German attack against Russia; if we did not have this long delay, the outcome of the war would have been different.”

Hitler’s Chief of Staff

“[We] thank the Greek People, whose resistance decided WWII … You fought unarmed and won, small against big … You gave us time to defend ourselves.”

Joseph Stalin

“Historic justices forces me to admit, that of all the enemies that stand against us, the Greek soldier, above all, fought with the most courage.”

Hitler
