Celebrate Greek Independence Day!

by Mary Papoulias-Platis

The March 25th celebration of Greek Independence Day is examined from both an ethnic and religious perspective. This beautiful film chronicles the War of Independence and profiles the heroes of the Revolution, and the Philhellenes-such as Lord Byron-whose loyalty was unwavering. Several scholars comment on 400 years of Ottoman rule, the Greek struggle for freedom and the remarkable similarities between the Greek and American quests for independence.
