Letter to the Editor: On the Juneteenth Holiday

To the Editor:

Now that Juneteenth has become a national holiday here in the United States, perhaps Greece should initiate a similar national holiday honoring the end of slavery in Greece. And conceivably it should also partner with the rest of the countries in the Balkans and celebrate the holiday on the same day. Possibly after seeing the freedom commemorated by the Christian descendants of the former Balkan slaves, the Turkish people may also want to establish a holiday to celebrate the end of slavery in their own country. This would be an important moment for the Turkish people to recognize their own history.

Thank you,

To the Editor: After reading a Letter to the Editor here entitled “Visiting Greece Is More Expensive This Year” (June 18), with the writer being from New York City, my personal experience is totally reversed.
