I finally figured out wher the photo was taken. The word Panayia appeared at the head of a list, but what immediately preceded it was not in the photo, and I thought it was a refenrence to Ayia Panayia (a church, or simply a dedication). But I ultimately realized that it might be the village of Panayia, and confirmed it by finding this web page:
The page commemorates the Battle of Panayia, 12-14/11/1944. The statue itself is to the resistance as well.
I think everyone who tried to help me find the location.
