Anogeia took part in all of Crete's struggles for liberation, the men of the area are reputed to be fierce fighters. During World War II it was a major centre for the resistance movement and it paid dearly for its involvement. In 1944, resistance fighters kept the kidnapped German General Von Kreipe prisoner here before smuggling him into Africa. In retaliation, German forces razed every building except the church and killed all the men they could find.
