Greek Revolution-Related Board Games Donated for Diaspora Children

ΑΤΗΕΝS — The Athens War Museum donated 400 board games related to the Greek Revolution (1821) to the Foreign Ministry's General Secretariat for Public Diplomacy & Greeks Abroad, in an event held at the museum on Wednesday.

The board games will be forwarded to children of diaspora Greeks, on the occasion of the bicentennial of the revolution against the Ottoman Turks, the secretariat said in a statement.

It is expected that the games – procured through the museum's collaboration with a Greek toy company – will strengthen relations of expatriates with Greece and enable Greek children abroad to better familiarize themselves with history.

"Regardless of how far away these children may be, they are the future of ecumenical Hellenism," said Foreign Affairs Deputy Minister Kostas Vlassis upon receiving the board games.


VENICE – The Greek Orthodox Community of Venice, the Hellenic Institute of Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Studies, and the Metropolis of Italy, in collaboration and with the help of the Embassy of Greece in Rome, are organizing a concert with the performer Kleoniki Demiri on Sunday, June 16, 8 PM.
