A memorial service was held on Sunday to honor the 66th anniversary of the battle at the Roupel Fortress on the Greek-Bulgarian frontier, in the presence of the four remaining WWII-era Greek servicemen that defended the fortification.
Local officials, office-holders, military officials and local residents attended the event.
The Roupel fortress was the largest independent cluster along the so-called "Metaxas Line". Defenders held out against surrounding Wehrmacht forces until April 23.
