Enclosed (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNUQxeq8oyM) find the video of our OXI Day panel discussion event I moderated on Sunday for the occasion entitled “OXI Day and its Effects on WW2, Europe and America”. We had Opening Remarks from the Hellenic Republic Secretary General for Public Diplomacy and Greeks Abroad Prof. Emeritus John/Ioannis Chrysoulakis and the Hellenic Republic Consul General in New York Dr. Konstantine Koutras. Our distinguished panel included the President of HELISS (Hellenic Institute for Strategic Studies)/Author/Hellenic Lt. General (r.)
