ASIA MINOR SOCIETY EXHIBIT COMING TO NEW JERSEY
The Asia Minor Hellenic American Society's "For Their Faith: Remembering the Greek Christians of Asia Minor on the 90th Anniversary of the Fall of Smyrna," on display for 14 months at St. Photios National Shrine in St. Augustine, Fla., will be revised for display at the Sts. Nicholas, Constantine and Helen Church in Roseland, N.J. later this year.
The revised exhibit is titled "For Their Faith: Remembering the Greek Christians of Asia Minor on the 90th Anniversary of the Population Exchange Between Greece and Turkey."
Jim and Helen Vardakis of Bayonne, N.J. have been working since last October to bring the exhibition to the New York metropolitan area.
For more information, and for anyone who would like to be a part of this exhibition, contact William or Regine Samonides at 330-452-5162 or email: SamonidesAMHAS@aol.com
Tentative plans are for the Samonideses to be at the Roseland parish the weekend of April 20 to scan original, vintage family photographs and collect stories from those wanting to contribute.
