Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the training and education of perpetrators. The training at the torture school during the Greek colonels' regime (1967-1974) served as an illustration of an extreme version of how to train people to commit atrocities such as torture. The chapter describes and analyse how carefully selected recruits from Greece's regular army were deliberately trained to become torturers at the KESA training centre. Before going into the training given to recruits at the Greek torture school, this chapter aims to identify the specific features and characteristics of ordinary military organizations, the initiation rites symbolizing the transition from the ordinary world into the military and the selection procedure and training and a special section which is dedicated to the training to kill. It is known that ordinary military training and the training and education of torturers at the Greek torture school have many features in common.
