NHM Partners with National Hellenic Society to Expand Oral History Project

CHICAGO – The National Hellenic Museum (NHM), the largest repository of Greek American oral histories, announced its campaign in partnership with the National Hellenic Society (NHS) to gather and archive more stories of the Greek-American experience.

NHM staff have provided training to NHS' Heritage Greece alumni so that they can gather oral histories in their local communities and parishes. These oral histories, in turn, will become part of the NHM Oral History Collection.

Cataloguing and collecting oral histories is an important part of preserving Greek-American history, offering first-hand accounts and personal stories that are critical to scholars, genealogists, communities, and families. This Collection's value is enhanced not only when there are a larger quantity of interviews, but when those interviews represent more diverse experiences within the Greek story in America. This project will facilitate increasing both the size and the diversity of the NHM Oral History Collection and provide the young Greek-Americans among NHS' Heritage Greece alumni the opportunity to not only connect with Greek-American history, but to have a hand in preserving the rich legacy that they have inherited.
