Get to Know Us. After finishing high school in his home town, he moved to Athens to enter the School of Medicine at the University of Athens. Lambrakis was a champion athlete throughout his life. He held the Greek record for long jump for twenty-three years — He also earned several gold medals in the Balkan Games , which took place annually, featuring competitors from Greece, Yugoslavia , Bulgaria , Romania , and Turkey. He competed in the men's long jump and the men's triple jump at the Summer Olympics.
He used the revenue from these games to fund public food-banks for the starving population. After World War II , Lambrakis completed his medical studies and worked as a lecturer in the Department of gynaecology. While not a Communist , Lambrakis' political and ideological orientation leaned towards the left.
He was actively involved in the pacifist movement of his time, which voiced strong opposition to the Vietnam War. In his capacity as Vice President of EDYE, Lambrakis participated in international pacifist meetings and demonstrations despite frequent threats against his life. EDYE was an organization set up by EDA which while not officially aligned to the World Council of Peace broadly supported its anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist position.
EDA had ceded Lambrakis full freedom to represent the Commission and he soon emerged as its most articulate and determined leader.
The police intervened, banned the rally and arrested many demonstrators Mikis Theodorakis among them. Lambrakis, protected by his parliamentary immunity, marched alone and arrived at the end of the rally holding the banner with the peace symbol photo , the one that he had previously held up during the Aldermaston rally in the United Kingdom while he was protesting near the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment AWRE. Soon afterward, he too was arrested by the police.
On May 22, , shortly after he had delivered the keynote speech at an anti-war meeting in Thessaloniki , two far-right extremists, Emannouel Emannouilides and Spyros Gotzamanis, driving a three-wheeled vehicle, struck Lambrakis with a club over the head in plain view of a large number of people and allegedly some police officers. He suffered brain injuries and died in the hospital five days later, on May The two men were arrested because of the reaction of a by-stander Manolis Hatziapostolou, nicknamed Tiger who jumped on their vehicle and fought with them.
The next day, in Athens, his funeral became a massive demonstration. More than , people rallied to protest against the right-wing government and the Royal Court, seen by many to support the activities of the right-wing extremists.
The assassination of Lambrakis initiated an enormous popular reaction, and soon after, investigator Christos Sartzetakis , district attorney Nikos Athanasopoulos and attorney general P. Delaportas uncovered connections of the police and army, including the Gendarmerie commander for Northern Greece, Konstantinos Mitsou , and various local police officers, like Kapelonis and Katsoulis, to far-right extremists. The judges lost their jobs during the military dictatorship of Christos Sartzetakis was also imprisoned for a year during the dictatorship.
The two murderers were released, while members of the conspiracy were favored.
