"Mapping Migration, Learning from Oral History: Ottoman Greek Immigration to Western Pennsylvania"

A Lecture-Presentation by Dr. Yiorgo Topalidis, Ph.D.
Interim Associate Director
Samuel Proctor Oral History Project
University of Florida

Until now, little was known about Greeks in the Ottoman Empire who migrated to America as immigrants prior to the Christian Genocide as well as those who were refugees to America during, and following this dark chapter in the history of Greeks. Dr. Topalidis' groundbreaking research has tracked these migrations to America. His lecture-presentation, for the first time, reveals those who settled in the greater Western PA region.

This event was hosted by the Greek Nationality Room of the Nationality Rooms and Intercultural Exchange Programs at the University of Pittsburgh, the American Hellenic Foundation of Western PA, and the European Art Center of Greece (EUARCE).
