Hermes AHEPA 186 Remembers the 200th Anniversary of the Hellenic Republic

ASTORIA – This year marks the 200th year since the declaration of Greece’s War for Independence and on March 18, Hermes AHEPA Chapter 186 of Astoria hosted a virtual presentation and lecture titled 1821: The Liberation of Greece.

The Chapter noted in a statement via email, “We were honored to have our very own Vice President and AHEPA District 6 Director of Culture & Arts, Vassilios (Billy) Chrissochos present his lecture on the liberation of Greece to all those in attendance.

“It is imperative that we remember momentous events lest we forget and hosting this lecture (among others) is our little part. Brother Billy presented a wonderful and detailed lecture on Greece’s fight for independence starting from before 1453, the end of Byzantium, and ending with Greece’s victory and independence. The lecture concluded with a healthy question and answer session from an engaged audience which fostered delightful dialogue, insight and perspective.”

The lecture is available for viewing online: https://www.patreon.com/posts/49130100.
