Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
in the current economic crisis comes, in large part no doubt, from the radically different attitudes to history between Greeks and the EU elites.

The "franco-german axis" (an unfortunate term in the context, but for want of a better word) have digested both fascism and communism and take for granted that a concensus view exists on the events of the 1940s. This is generally true in French and German society, but obviously a wide range of situations exist in the rest of Europe. And Greece is no doubt on the bleeding edge of undigested history.
