More than four hundred of rare and precious objects are displayed at the exhibition "Greeks of the Diaspora" which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Tuesday evening at the Parliament building in Athens.
The objects cover a period extending from the 15th to the 21st centuries.
Addressing the inauguration event, Parliament President Anna Psarouda-Benaki said that Greeks of the Diaspora were "an inseparable part of Hellenism which contributed in a substantial way to the development of the new Greek State in every way and continues to support Greece in its national causes every time the need arises."
The exhibition, she added, "is particularly precious, comprising an acquaintance with the life of Greeks of the Diaspora through a rich collection of newspapers and reviews as well as photographs."
