Ambassador of Greece to the U.S. Ekaterini Nassika Visits TNH Offices

LONG ISLAND CITY, NY – Ambassador of Greece to the United States Ekaterini Nassika visited the offices of The National Herald on April 15.

Ambassador Nassika had traveled to New York in order to attend the events and the parade celebrating the 203rd anniversary of Greek Independence and received a warm welcome from the co-publishers-editors Ethnikos Kyrikas/TNH Eraklis Diamataris and Vanessa Diamataris.

During the discussion, Amb. Nasika showed particular interest in the history of the National Herald, which is celebrating 109 years of operation and contributions to the community.

“I am very excited. I did not expect the offices of the historical newspaper to be so beautiful. A newspaper from 1915. It seems very significant to me that it has remained from Greek hands to Greek hands. It also seems very significant to me – but also very touching – that the younger members of the family continue to work on the newspaper with fervor and dreams,” said the ambassador, who also asked about the future goals of TNH.

“I asked them about their dreams,” she said. “They have dreams, they want to catch up with the new age with all the new media, the electronic age, they want to open the newspaper to even the smallest community in the USA and they seek to do essentially what the National Herald started: To speak with the voice of Hellenism and to promote it. I think they are right, even from the smallest communities you can see where Hellenism is going, how much it is progressing, what power it has, what influence it has,” Amb. Nassika concluded.
