The little "Führer" and his guards

In any case, invited to the camps organized by "Golden Dawn" were also supporters from abroad: "They came from South Africa, Germany, Italy, members of the Nazi, extreme right and racist organizations. In the beginning we looked upon the Germans with respect. The more I got to know them, however, the more I loathed them. They would wake up at noon, drinking a bottle of ouzo in one go, listen to hard music, and as they were so drunk they started hurling racist abuse", said in an interview Kousoumvris.

"Golden Dawn" started off as a magazine in 1980 and was published until January 1984. Then the publishing stopped because Mihaloliakos was having problems with the police. He closed the editor’s office and left for South Africa. Nobody knows what he did there. When he returned, however, he found himself in position - leader of the Youth EPEN (Nationalist Youth Organization), after the personal order of the jailed dictator George Papadopoulos. A year later Mihaloliakos left the youth organization, accusing supporters of the junta, and re-established "Golden Dawn". The organization gradually became a party and its main slogan in recent years has been: "Foreigners out of Greece". With this slogan the party attracts a lot of followers, and carefully conceals its swarthy face. Members of "Golden Dawn" say they strive for "racial purity", but two party candidates are married (or were married) to immigrants.

The Chief wants “his people” to be appointed. It is not accidental that the lists of candidates include his wife Eleni Zaroulia, his relative Ilias Kasidiaris and the friend of his daughter Urania, Artemis Mateopoulos.

After all that has happened (and probably what is expected to happen in the future) the former "guard" in "Golden Dawn" Christos Kousoumvris writes on page 103 of his book: “Well, I have the courage to admit that I had fallen into the trap of the "fanatical" followers of a funny little “Führer”, a being, which if the public had at least a little dignity, would lock up in a cage and carry around the neighbourhoods, so that he could entertain the sad borrowers…"
