Documentary ”Lethal Nationalism: Genocide of the Greeks 1913-1923”
The Asia Minor and Pontos Hellenic Research Center (AMPHRC) will present this work on Saturday, December 7th at seven o’clock in the evening.
This hard-hitting documentary, which will inform the public about the destruction of Hellenism of Asia Minor in the early 20th century, will be held at the Pickwick Theater, 5 South Prospect, Park Ridge, Illinois.
Exhibitions and Tours
Of course, people are encouraged to visit the Museum at any time they would like, to enjoy all the exhibits of the Museum at their own pace and take a tour at their convenience.
Everyone is invited to interact hands-on with Greek-American culture and to reflect on making their own place in history.
It is well known that the legacy of Hellenism lives on through active learning at the Museum, so anyone, especially school-age children, is welcome to view the exhibits during this holiday season and take part in interactive experiences.
The museum offers a variety of school and family programs which encourage experiential learning and offer new ways of thinking about Greek history and the Greek culture to supplement classroom and home learning.
The National Hellenic Museum will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, and on Friday the 29th, as well as Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day.
