Letter to the Editor: Parthenon Sculptures Panel Discussion 

July 19, 2022

To the Editor:

I thank The National Herald for their June 18 article on the Parthenon Sculptures controversy. The panel discussion was presented by the Eastern Mediterranean Business Culture Alliance in association with AHEPA’s Hellenic Cultural Commission with moderator Lou Katsos. The panelists were well prepared and brought concrete answers to the questions presented, with alternate solutions. After viewing the video, I have no doubt that there will be more people supporting the return of the Parthenon Sculptures to their country of origin, Greece. The video is on You Tube:  https://bit.ly/3triFcP.

In a November poll 59% of the British population indicated they want the Parthenon Sculptures returned to Greece. UNESCO and The Guardian newspaper also are in favor of their return. Thus, it has become a battle with British politics vs. culture.

I conclude by saying that the Parthenon is the ‘mother’ waiting for her family/friends that sit in the British Museum to return home to Athens, Greece… their place of birth!

Although it is not mentioned anywhere in the announcements issued, it is considered certain that the resignations of the director of the Hellenic Intelligence Service (EYP) and the director of the Prime Minister's Office – as its immediate supervisor – are related to the matter of the attempt to hack the cell phone of the president of PASOK-KINAL, Nikos Androulakis.
