The achievements of the Greeks in Asia Minor, Thrace and Pontos in philosophy, history, literature and science continue to enrich our lives.


This Hellenic legacy is with us each day, and the facts and reasons behind the destruction of the Greek civilization in this part of the world between 1913 and 1923 must be thoroughly documented and understood.

We are very appreciative of the generous donors, many efforts and dedicated individuals that provided the initial funding, gifts in kind and volunteer hours for the production of the documentary ‘Lethal Nationalism.’

The documentary includes original photographs, archival films, HD footage and documents, as well as videotaped lectures and interviews of many historians.  It is available for screening.


The Hellenic Research Center is continuing to seek financial assistance for the marketing and translation of this powerful documentary to reach global public television, cable networks, and internet channels.  With your support we can reach a vast and diverse audience worldwide.


We urge you to share this information and encourage your friends and family to contribute to this important historical representation of a genocide which must not be “forgotten” a moment longer.
