The national month of poetry, celebrated all over the US with a series of literary events, was inaugurated on Sunday with the presentation of the work and life of Greek playwright Iakovos Kambanellis at the Holocaust Museum in Washington.
The event was organized by the Holocaust Museum in cooperation with the press office of the Greek embassy in Washington at the museum's main amphitheatre. The public was moved by the personal ordeal of the well-known Greek playwright and member of the Athens Academy and by extracts from his work entitled "Mauthausen."
Kambanellis was introduced to the public by Greece's Ambassador to the US Alexander Philon, who spoke of his theatrical plays, film scenarios and poems and thanked the Holocaust Museum for cooperation it has developed with the Greek embassy.
