New Historical & Sociological Book Released: “Greeks in Chile”

A systematic 15 years of  research even in the cemeteries of the most remote town of Chile, regarding information on Greeks, dating from 1536,  and more recent immigrant interviews were used for a new book.  The book titled: “Greeks in Chile” was recently published.  The book is based on a historical and sociological study and records the Odyssey of Greeks in Chile.
The authors are Alexandros D. Zorbas, former director of the Center of Greek, Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies of Universidad de Chile and Nikiforos Nikolaidis, SAE Coordinator in Latin America and successful businessman in Chile.
The book presentation took place in Santiago in a crowded hall at the University De Las Americas.  It took place on the occasion of the 200 year celebration for the independence of Chile. The presentation was attended by representatives of the Greek and Chilean state, as well as many Greeks and Philhellenes.
“Greeks in Chile” is a bilingual edition in Greek and Spanish.  The cost for research and publishing was covered by the authors. As it is explained by the authors in the preface, their aim is not to make a profit from this publication.
