Athens, Sunday 30th March 1952. At 4:10 in the morning, four Greek communists were gunned down, despite appeals for clemency from Charlie Chaplin, Jean-Paul Sartre and General de Gaulle. Despite Picasso's 'Man with a Carnation' drawing, which turned one of the prisoners into a global icon. The man with the carnation was called Nikos Beloyannis. Who was he? Why was the world so moved by his sacrifice? Why did he agree to die for his beliefs?
