Greek Culture Minister Aristidis Baltas will guide a hundred refugees around the ancient site of the Acropolis. The refugees – mainly families from hospitality centers of Eleonas, Athens center, and Schistos, Piraeus – will be the minister’s guests in the framework of events celebrating Europe Day (May 9).
The goal of the event is to “sensitize” people on the refugee crisis. Following a visit to the Acropolis, the guests will visit the Acropolis Museum. The event is being held with the collaboration of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and Flux Laboratory cultural organization.
Europe Day is an annual EU celebration of peace and unity that acknowledges the establishment of the historical declaration for the establishment of the Council of Europe in 1949.
