Well done 'PAHH'. No one has done anything like this for Greeks in England.

I was most pleased in reading of the success of the documentary The Pioneers to notice that it was written and directed by Mrs. Anna Giannotis. What a fine tribute to our ancestors.

As I read the article which was on the front page of the National Herald, March 25, 2006, I especially enjoyed the photo of Mrs. Giannotis whose mother, Mrs. Julia Giannotis, was a good friend of my own mother, Mrs. Mary Parkos of Newport, Rhode Island. What a wonderful opportunity to remember the past good times of those two dynamic women — our mothers.

I wish to send her my good wishes and congratulate her on a superb job. She deserves every recognition, for her hard work is much appreciated.

Thank you for one of the most interesting reads I've encountered on the internet, I've always been interested in stories involving Greeks. Although of Greek-Australian descent, the descriptions of the operations undertaken instill a sense of pride. Simply amazing.

Bravo pou rihnetai ena akoma sosivio gia na glitosoume apo tin exafanisi pou kathe toso mas apilei.

Thank you so much for publishing the Greek Exile information on your website. Your wonderful site should be bookmarked and visited by all Greek-Americans. We have just created a link to your site under the Hellenic Diaspora category in the Chian Federation website.

Keep up the good work,

My late Grandfather served in British Special Forces (Raiding Support Regiment,Raiding Forces-Middle East/SAS) and spent several months on Vis carrying out raids and so it's been great to read about someone else who was also there carrying out the same kind of work.

A very interesting account that is much appreciated by me.

Jason C. Mavrovitis
Sonoma, California

Thank you for publishing Andrew Mousalimas' gripping memoirs of his experiences in the OSS during World War II. It is a fascinating account, and Mr. Mousalimas has done a great service in documenting the sacrifices of the Greek-Americans who fought behind the lines. He and his comrades brought honor home to themselves and to their heritage.

Chris

Interesting website! Must say ~ I particularly appreciated your announcement about the London Greek history books. I am studying here in London ~ will be sure to return to read more of your material.

Zachary Gassoumis

I have enjoyed browsing your website since its inception a year ago. It is a wonderfully positive step towards the preservation, acknowledgement, and public awareness of the Hellenic American community both within and outside of the US. Your efforts are greatly appreciated by Greek communities everywhere and are a true testament to the strength and character of the American Greek. Thank you all.

Check Jason Mavrovitis' Out of The Balkans in our Memoirs section of the PAHH web-site. It is wonderful!

I am very much interested in preserving Hellenic History. This is a project I would like to devote my spare time to! Thank you to all who created this site!

Leonidas Devetzis
Thessaloniki, Greece

I am very interested in Greek history, and I'm interested in American Hellenic history as well. From now on, I will visit your website often.
Greetings from Greece.

Manthos Demetzos
Athens, Hellas

CONGRATULATIONS!!
Since I am a native of Hellas, I will try to contribute to your effort to ''preserve'' Hellenic history. I will offer some thoughts about it, asking you to get (if it is possible out there) the BHMA newspaper, 28th of April 2002 issue. It has a precis of a interesting book in English of Spyros E. Iakovidis, titled GLA AND THE KOPAIS IN THE 13th CENTURY BC I don't know if and how many of you have ever traveled to Hellas and specially have traveled by bus or by car from Athens to Thessaloniki, but if someone will have the opportunity, I suggest to him/her first to get the book and read the unbelievable but real findings of what our propatores back in the 13th century BC had made, and then to make the short break of about 2.5 hours driving-time from Athens. Back in that century, when many of today's civilized nations did not even exist, our propatores had created something nearly impossible, for that period of time. They had managed to pour out of Kopais Lake, almost 100 cubic meters per second. For that, they had moved 2 million cubic meters of soil, in order to make the dams they needed. We used to pass-by this achievement without even knowing what exists on that spot. Hellenism, wherever someone will go ~ in and out off today's Hellas ~ is healthy and present.
CONGRATULATIONS, again!!

Welcome to the PAHH web-pages. We're proud of Terry M., Harry A., and of course, Mary M. for their efforts in establishing this beautiful web-site. Keep up the good work.

Harry Ahlas

It is terrific to see the collaboration of minds from all over the country (and Europe too). This web-site should considerably facilitate the communication between historical preservationists in America.

Maria Mavrou Yorgakopoulou
Amherst, Massachusetts

Wonderful, a great site. (The recent letter by Mr. Andrew Mousalimas to the Hellenic Voice is too.)

As the grandchild (both sides) of the original protopatores to this country, I share your vision, and seek your guidance and experience in preserving the triumvarite: language, culture, religion.

My grandfathers came from Vamvakou, Sparti, staring in 1880 to c. 1900. My father was born and raised in LOWELL, MASS, during the heyday of Hellenismos. He was born 1909, was one of the first graduates of the Holy Trinity day school, where he had a first class Greek bilingual education: his Greek and English were unmatched. His father, Costas Mavros was a famous singer/violinist of his time, and I believe was the first to produce Greek-Oriental records in the U.S. Of course, all were heavily involved in fights with the Irish, struggled to bulid the railroads, and toiled in the mines of Utah.

My own father was a life-long union organizer and populist candidate for many offices, also an activist for all Greek causes, often at the helm, while official Greek-American organizations stood by. Alone, he picketed Boston racists, or the decision to give the Olympics to Atlanta. His brothers, Leonard, Spiro Phil Georges were actors and football stars, respectively. His sister, at almost 90, is the organist for Holy Transfiguration in Lowell, recently receiving a special award by the Archdiocese as the longest organist still playing (over 65 years, continuously).

My mother, also from Vamvakou and Vassara, Laconia, lived though the war and the civil war. My husband, from Affission, Laconia, although born in 1953, also suffered the consequences of war, losing his brother at age 9 to an Italian hand grenade, and also himself suffering head trauma.

Our history has been paid for in blood ~ we must tell the truth.

Thank you for the work you do.

MR
The San Francisco Bay Area

By the way, here is another site that may be of interest to your visitors: www.greece.org/themis/halki. It addresses some issues regarding the theological school, Halki.
