The Parthenon Marbles Should Be Returned

Εθνικός Κήρυξ

To the Editor:

In the recent article on the return of the Parthenon Marbles, the National Herald touched on an issue that has occupied Greece for many years. I think the whole world should be concerned because the Parthenon is a World Heritage Site.

The Sculptures stolen by Elgin must be returned to where they belong. The excuses that we don't have a museum to house them are long gone. For almost 11 years we have had a new museum much superior to the British Museum. The Greek government should push harder and end this story once and for all.
