From In Defense Of Communism
Mikis Theodorakis, anticipating the end of his life, had contacted by
telephone the Secretary General of the Central Committee of the
Communist Party of Greece, Dimitris Koutsoumbas, giving him the stigma
of his last wishes.

In his personal letter on October 5, 2020, to Dimitris Koutsoumbas,
he wrote: “Now at the end of my life, at the time of reckoning, the
details fade from my mind and remain the big picture. So I see that my
most critical, strong and mature years were spent under the banner of
the KKE. That is why I want to leave this world as a communist.”

The great composer and fighter of social justice, democracy and peace, Mikis Theodorakis, died yesterday, 2 September, at the age of 96. Read here the statement of the Communist Party of Greece.
