Bust theft.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Po­lice yesterday were seek­ing the thieves who stole a brass bust of famed Greek singer Sofia Vembo from in front of Vo­los Town Hall over the week­end. The bust had been un­veiled 10 years ago to honor Vembo, who grew up in Vo­los, in cen­tral Greece, af­ter mov­ing to the city with her fam­ily from Eastern Thrace. Vembo shot to fame in Greece dur­ing the Sec­ond World War on ac­count of singing pa­tri­otic songs, which earned her the nick­name of “Songstress of Vic­tory.” As a re­sult, she was given the honorary rank of ma­jor in the Hel­lenic Army.
