Readings at the Exhibition “I the truth…”
Join us here, every Wednesday at 19.00, for a short but comprehensive introduction to
fascinating aspects of modern Greek history.
Every Wednesday at 19.00 a thread starts from the exhibition “I the truth…” presented at the exhibition space of the Parliament Foundation (11 Vas. Sofias and Sekeri, Athens): we follow it and travel into the past, turning the pages of the memoirs and getting to know the Revolution and the creation of the new Greek state and the new society.
Distinguished historians and scholars shed light – each through their own research and personal perspective
– a memoirist and his work or a particular event through its portrayal in the memoirs of the fighters.
Our Readings will start on Wednesday 9 February 2022 and will end on Wednesday 30 February 2022.
March 2022. Anyone interested can follow them through the Webex platform.
