4 President s Message MALIOTIS CULTURAL CENTER Acting on Opportunities! Christ is Risen! Dear fellow Cretans: In the last two issues of KPHTH I brought to your attention two great opportunities now before us. The first is the access to Google, through the University of Michigan Modern Greek Chair, to place, free of charge, all of our history and archives on the internet. The second is making our Association self-sustained by developing a permanent home for ourselves and future generations of American-Cretans on our property at Atsipopoulo Crete. In this issue I would like to bring to your attention our opportunity to utilize the Maliotis Cultural Center (MCC) to collect, catalog, and preserve our archives before they are lost forever. As you know we have been using the MCC for over 20 years to store the archives that we have in our possession. The last PAA Board meeting was held there for the inauguration of the PAA room, the unveiling of Nikos Kalimerakis bust, and a first hand evaluation of the archives we have and the facilities that exist. We were very pleasantly surprised and astonished at the wealth of information that we have. The room we now have is sufficient for work space to scan any number of articles. The physical storage of the articles is limited but could be expanded in the lower level of the MCC as the need arises. At all times we can have a display on the wall of adjacent public rooms for visitors to see. On page 2 of this issue you can see the type of displays that we can use to exhibit our archives. Mr. Nikos Minadakis deserves our gratitude for the excellent job he has done in preserving the KPHTH collection of the late Harry Erinakis which Mrs. Erinakis entrusted to the PAA. We are indebted and must be thankful to these beautiful Cretans whose foresight and love for our heritage has saved these irreplaceable treasures. You can tell that this was a labor of love. Their fine example must set the standard for the rest of us to follow. A serious effort to collect and preserve what is available must begin now. Past PAA Presidents, Past Board members, their families, and every member who has archives from chapter and PAA events should give them to the PAA to be preserved for posterity. We have one small room for our exclusive use at the MCC and personnel who can scan, catalog, and preserve all text and photos on the computer we have purchased. Once these articles are preserved electronically, the originals can be stored at the MCC or returned to the donor. Kosta Travayiakis will oversee this effort, in consultation with Niko Minadakis, Mary Vasilakis, and Antony Dogiakis. The electronic records will be made available by CDs to every chapter that has a clubhouse and eventually to the whole world through the internet. The collection of our archives cannot and should not be delayed because with every passing day we lose part of our history. Members of the PAA Board at the Maliotis Center Having our archives at the MCC will give the Association high public exposure by displaying articles during the numerous functions that take place weekly at this prestigious institution. With the Hellenic College within 100 yards, it gives us ample competent manpower to do our work. In addition, every new priest that graduates from the College will have direct knowledge of the PAA archives and will talk about them throughout his life at the various parishes he will serve. I cannot think of any better way to bring our Association to every Cretan home in America! The decision made over 20 years ago, to have our archives at the MCC, was very wise. Now it is up to you to make it happen. Please start immediately collecting what archives you have and send them to us by UPS at: PANCRETAN ASSOCIATION ARCHIVES C/O Maliotis Cultural Center 50 Goddard Ave. Brookline MA You can call Kosta Travayiakis at to give you a UPS a number to use for the shipping. Christ is Risen! Stavros N Semanderes President PAA 4 KPHTH CRETE APRIL 2005

6 COVER STORY Turning what started as his mother s By Demetrios Rhompotis stories to an epic documentary NEW YORK. Christos Epperson, a second generation Cretan from California, and an already accomplished film director, grew up hearing stories from relatives about the epic Battle of Crete and the ensuing resistance that lasted until every German soldier left the island. Thrilled to find out that even relatives of his took part in that massive effort, paying the ultimate price for it, he started collecting everything he could find on that story and last year he managed to put together a unique in its kind documentary film which is about to be presented for the first time during the PAA s upcoming convention. The 11th Day, as the filmed is titled, starts with the German invasion and continues with the resistance movement the tactics of which are still studied by prospective military leaders at the West Point Academy! More that 35 resistance veterans, including celebrated fighter George Tzitzikas and British S.O.E.

7 Scene from The Eleventh Day the Nazi garrison commander in Crete, were interviewed for the film, offering ample first hand information on the events. With a cover story in the May issue of USFILM Magazine, as well as in KPHTH and the National Herald, word about the film is spreading fast. The crew was recently honored to have been invited to Washington D.C. to present a special sneak preview of The 11 th Day to a congressional panel convened by Florida Congressman Michael Bilirakis. So far, it s the only film crew to have been invited to show a preview before a congressional panel! Along with the film, a website (www.crete1941.com) has been set up, containing over 500 pages of un- Actor of the epic movie The Eleventh Day published photographs, 16mm film of the actual battle, veteran interviews, battle timelines etc. that can provide valuable material for whoever is interested in one of the most important pages of modern Hellenic and why not world history. At age 33, Christos Epperson has won several web design and production awards and filmed for Discovery Channel, NBA, NFL, ESPN, Kaiser, United Airlines, Blue Angeles etc. He was born in Sacramento, California, where he still resides, unwilling to move to Los Angeles, as his agent has suggested, because he believes that Northern CA is wide open for independent film production. We have great talent here and some of the best locations for filming. COVER STORY The Xirouhakis Family and WWII Kyriako was the only Xirouhakis sibling who fought the Italians and Germans in Albania in where he was injured. In 1943 he and his sisters Eleutheria and Rita joined the resistance group Pibli in Hania, Crete. Eleutheria spoke three languages and worked in a German office where she had access to classified documents that she would steal, translate and give to the resistance group. On June 11, the Germans came during Manoli s wedding reception and arrested all the siblings except Artemisia who was a baby at the time. According to my uncle Niko (Kyriako s second son) one of Manoli s ex-girlfriends (jealous due to the wedding) had informed the Germans about the Xirouhakis involvement in the resistance. During the search of the house, the Germans found a diagram of the Perivolitsa camp behind a painting on the wall. They interrogated all the siblings and Eleutheria took responsibility for the diagram in order to protect her brothers and sisters. Her exact words according to German Lieutenant Volf Sinter were I am a spy, I work with the resistance group Pibli and I will not reveal anything else. They were all taken to the prison at Agia where Eleutheria was severely tortured by the Germans Hoffman and Fritz Sterling in order to reveal her contacts in the resistance. She was hung naked in the ladies room and beaten repeatedly for three days and nights, but didn t reveal anything. It is important to point out that there was a German guard next to her 24 hours a day to prevent her from sleeping. Finally, on July 13, 1944 the Germans executed Eleutheria. Her last words according to the records of German nurse Fritz Nider who went to check her to make sure she was dead were Away with your dirty hands so you don t pollute a Greek woman. Long live Greece. Kyriako, Manoli and Dimitri were sent to the Dahau concentration camp and Rita was sent to another concentration camp somewhere in Eastern Europe. They all survived and returned to Crete after the war was over. The three brothers returned the same day their parents were having a memorial for them since they thought they had died. On April 4, 2004 the cultural group Omonia honored Eleutheria with a statue at the church grounds in Aroni, Crete. APRIL 2005 KPHTH CRETE 7

8 COVER STORY As one of two sons - his brother, Dr. Michael Epperson, wrote the script of the The 11 th Day - of Elizabeth Dokimos, Speech Pathologist and English Professor Gordon Epperson, Chris started out his career by shooting fashion for DKNY and Liz Claiborne. In 1995 he decided to go solo and his production company Archangel Films came to being. So far he has produced and directed over 70 commercials and music videos. He currently has in development a children s show, a book on the battle of Crete, and two films which are in script development. The next project will go into production after the 11th Day Tour, late November THE INTERVIEW Q. You live in California, the center of modern cinematography, and yet you decided to make a documentary on the Battle of Crete. Why? A. I have always been interested in WWII, and especially in the campaign in Crete. I made the movie because I believe that the Battle of Crete and the subsequent resistance movement is one of the most horrific events of WWII, yet few people know about it. The main purposes of the film and of the website are to educate the public and to preserve the veterans stories for future generations. The veterans told their stories in their own words which is important to the accurate recording of historical events. Q. How much of a challenge was it for you in artistic, logistical and informational terms. A. There was a wealth of untapped information to find. To do so I did a world wide library and internet search. When we had finished, we had filmed 35 veterans and catalogued 500 unpublished photographs. We also found unpublished 16mm film of the battle itself. As a result of all my research, I now have the largest collection of books, periodicals and memorabilia related to the Battle of Crete and the following Resistance Movement. Filming on location was very difficult. We traveled with about 2,500 pounds of equipment uniforms and props. I wanted to film and do the re-enactments on actual battle sites. Most of those locations were way up in the mountains and we had to pack the gear on our backs. But, you can t beat the footage. As we say, this is true indie gorilla production! Actors are always coming up to me on the set to say we should do a story just on the making of the film. Q. How do you understand being Cretan in America, especially if you were born and raised here, as your case is? How did that special feeling or set of beliefs that define a great part of your character came to be in you? A. I take great pride in being a Cretan and what my family did during the War. My visit with my relatives in Crete as a young teenager had a great influence on my love of my Cretan heritage. Q. At what point did you start exploring the Hellenic and Cretan in particular, part of yourself? Usually Greek Americans tend to become more alienated as they leave their family environment. With you the opposite seems to be true. A. I think that everyone at some point in his life tends to explore that side of himself. I was raised hearing the stories of Crete and about the family participation in the Resistance Movement. My trip to Crete as a teenager made my connection with Crete and my heritage even more intense. Making the movie is an incredible experience. The people of Crete are heroes in every sense of the word and to spend time with them and go to the battle grounds where they fought was truly an amazing feeling. Q. You are also a product of what we call a mixed marriage. How do you balance (if you do) the two components and why has the Cretan side of you acquired such a prominence? A. I was raised by my mother and yiayia who was born in Canea and is the embodiment of a Cretan woman. So that side always was stronger in my upbringing. Q. Do you consider a positive thing for the young people to get involved in the Greek-American organizations? What is your experience? A. I have to say that over the last two years I have been in contact with dozens of Cretan and Hellenic organizations from all over the world, and I have had a positive experience from every one. I have met many great people and I can t say enough good things about any of them. I believe people should get involved in any organization that fits with them. Don t join just to join. Join to become a part of something bigger than yourself. Q. Name a few things that you would like to see changed or reformed in order to facilitate the involvement of the younger generations in those organizations. A. Things get changed by taking action. People who don t get involve and stay on the sidelines should not complain. It is time to step up and be heard. The torch has been passed to the younger generation. Like I said before, we need to preserve these incredible stories so we can pass them down to the next generation and the generations that come after. Q. When you started making the movie, did you look for support in such groups and, if yes, did you get any? A. There are many people to thank: First and foremost, my Executive Producer Alex G. Spanos who I have worked with for over three years; my Production advisors Natalia Orfanos and Steve Cohen; everyone with the PAA and my friend Stavros Semanderes who was there for me at the very beginning of my project and when we were invited to the U.S. Congress to show a preview of the movie. He was the first one I saw there for support. There are too many names to list. I had over 400 Extras and the 2 nd unit crew in Crete and my main crew of my brother Mike, Ian, Jordan, Chris, Eric, Angus and Shirley. Also, our Historic Advisor Costas Mamalakis who has been invaluable to the production and all of the veterans who we filmed. Most of all, this film could not have been made without the advice and participation of my very good friend and advisor George Tzitzikas, one of the most important veterans of the Resistance. Q. What message would you like to convey to the Greek American community, especially the Cretans who are the primary readers of this magazine. A. Crete fell but her people never surrendered. It is time that the rest of the world knows the truth of our story and what our people did to change the tide of the WWII. Please visit the website crete1941.com and help spread the word. Like I said, the torch has been passed. Where it goes now is up to us. Long live Crete! 8 KPHTH CRETE APRIL 2005

9 SPECIAL REPORT/ÑÅÐÏÑÔÁÆ PAA HEADQUARTERS - CANDIDATE CITIES Chicago By Katerina Kiagias The Cretan Fraternity of Chicago and Suburbs was founded in Best known as the Mecca of business and trade, Chicago was and still is a popular city for Cretan immigrants. In 1916, jobs were readily available and Cretans along with many other Greek immigrants found a place where they could get a job and raise their families. Most importantly they had found a place they could call home. Today there are four Cretan Chapters in the Chicago land Area, the Cretan fraternity of Chicago and Suburbs, the Cretan Ladies of Amalthia, The Cretan Youth of Chicago and the Faragi of Samaria Chapter. Over the years the Greek community has established a name for itself. From the first day Greek immigrants set foot on American soil they have seized every opportunity possible. They have educated themselves and their children and have since built up good reputations for themselves and their families. Most notably, along with their perseverance they have preserved their Cretan Heritage and Culture. Chicago, in our humble opinion, is the greatest city! We have a breathtaking skyline, an optimum lakeshore, 550 parks and the finest shopping. The population of the Chicago MSA is over 9,000,000 people. In this vast melting pot you will find a diversified culture. There are several events held all year round which help to celebrate these different ethnicities and traditions. The Greek Festival, The Greek Independence Day Parade, The Blues Fest, The Jazz Festival and The Taste of Chicago are only a few of those enriching events. There are over 40 museums, 200 theatres, and 15,000 restaurants (probably mostly owned by Greeks) that color the streets of Chicago. Chicago is also the home of three of the world s tallest buildings, and the world s largest public Library. Today, Chicago is estimated to be the home to over 500,000 Greek Americans. With a newly renovated and ever so popular Greek Town, Greek Americans can have a home away from home. People are captivated by its charm and hospitable surroundings. There are many elements that encourage the public to be a part of the mini town s numerous festivities. These include the Greek Museum, vivacious restaurants and cultured retail shops. The archdiocese of Chicago has more than 50 Parishes in the surrounding areas. It is headquarters to SAE, ENOSIS, UHAC, UHVA and many other Greek American Organizations. Being in the Central States region of the United States it would be an ideal location for the PAA National Headquarters. It is centrally located and would be inviting to the Western and Eastern regions of the US. O Hare International airport is a hub for most national airlines. Hotels are easily found and reasonably priced. It has one of the best Real Estate investment markets in the nation, with a stable economy, low vacancy rates, high rent per square foot and stable values. Chicago is the most logical place for the PAA National Headquarters seeing that it is situated in the heart of our nation. Our fellow members from California, Denver, Utah, as well as our members from Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Florida, would only travel 2-3 hours as opposed to traveling coast to coast, with connections and 5-6 hour flight. PAA National Headquarters deserve to be in a place where the Greek culture is active and dynamic. Chicago is an inviting city that would help the PAA thrive and accomplish its purpose.

10 SPECIAL REPORT/ÑÅÐÏÑÔÁÆ PAA HEADQUARTERS - CANDIDATE CITIES Washington For a number of years the PAA has been toiling over the idea of a permanent headquarters. Traditionally, the official headquarters of the association has been New York City while the administrative headquarters floated to the address of the incumbent PAA president. It is refreshing that we have taken the first steps towards a permanent location for our headquarters. As most of us are aware, the PAA Permanent Headquarters Committee, chaired by John Manos, proposed a short list of three cities that would best serve the PAA needs. They are New York, Chicago, and Washington, DC. Through a series of articles, over the next three issues of KPHTH, each of the three choices will be presented to our members. The final selection will be made at the Las Vegas Convention. The first of the articles is intended to familiarize the members with Washington, DC, the venue of choice for the largest concentration of Associations in the U.S. with a total of 5,397 at the end of As the seat of the U.S. Congress and Senate, the Executive and Judicial branches of government and all government agencies, commissions, departments, embassies and consulates and a multitude of interest groups, Washington, DC is truly the nerve center of the country. It is also one of the world s most visited destinations for tourism and business, offering a wide variety of hotel accommodations, meeting facilities and restaurants. And while meetings are in progress, the family can take advantage of all the cultural activities and beautiful excursions the city offers. ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA The City of Alexandria, Virginia is nationally recognized as one of the best places to live and do business on the East Coast. Alexandria is conveniently located inside the Beltway, just across the Potomac River from Washington, DC and minutes away from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. The city s robust business environment is fueled by stable economic drivers such as the second-largest concentration of technology companies in Northern Virginia, the fourth-largest concentration of professional associations in the country, the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and a tourism industry that hosts nearly two million visitors a year! Alexandria is a major location for the nation s trade and professional associations. Nearly 400 associations employing approximately 11,000 the fourth largest concentration in the United States have selected Alexandria as the ideal location to establish their headquarters. Organizations which are exempt from federal income taxation by virtue of their Section 501(c)(3) status under the Internal Revenue Code, can realize significant cost savings by purchasing a building through Alexandria s Industrial Development Authority s bond financing program. Tax-exempt financing is a mechanism by which state and local government can promote a variety of public purposes, such as economic development and charitable activities, education and health care. In Virginia, the Industrial Development and Revenue Bond Act provides the legal framework for such financing. Under the Act, local industrial development authorities act as conduits, issuing their bonds and lending the proceeds to 501(c)(3) organizations. The Financial markets set interest rates on such bonds below comparable rates for taxable financings because bondholders can exclude interest on the bonds from their gross income. 10 KPHTH CRETE APRIL 2005

11 SPECIAL REPORT/ÑÅÐÏÑÔÁÆ PAA HEADQUARTERS - CANDIDATE CITIES New York By Steven Zeimbekakis New York City (NYC) is the best choice for the PAA headquarters for several reasons: 1) The bulk of the Cretan population in the country in centered in the North East and NYC probably has the largest number of Hellenes and Cretans than any other city in America. Thus, many of our members would have easy access to our headquarters. Also, it would be easy to recruit or hire bilingual staff for the offices. 2) NYC is the gateway to America where all dignitaries from Greece pass even if their final destination is elsewhere. Also, many of our members traveling to Greece pass through NYC and would be easy for them to visit our headquarters. 3) NYC is the cultural center that attracts many tourists, musicians, academicians, museum exhibits, expos and other, most cultural, political, intellectual, educational, financial, sports and entertainment activities are on a NY first or NY only basis. Members visiting NYC for such culture and entertainment event will have the opportunity to visit the PAA headquarters. 4) Many major institutions are based in NY like the UN, the Archdiocese, the Consulates of Greece, Cyprus and all other countries. It has the largest collection of Universities with many Greek students who would have access to research material from our archives. 5) Astoria with its Greek shops and restaurants is like being in Greece without leaving the US and is an attraction for Hellenes from all over the US. 6) Many potentially large donors pass through NY, such as actress Jennifer Aniston, whose father is from Crete, is at the moment the best known woman entertainer as well as many other successful businessmen, sportsmen, entertainers, financiers, artists and all that is part of a world dominant culture like the American. 7) Perhaps the strongest incentive is the opportunity for financial growth of the real estate investment that we may make in NYC. We have several members who are very savvy real estate investors and could lead us to good opportunities. NYC is economically very alive and thriving area, which means that our real estate assets would pick up value faster than most other places. This is more so in Manhattan itself in an affordable neighborhood like streets and East side and where rental income would be also guaranteed. An investment of $4-5 million would earn good income from rentals while tripling its value in 15 years. 8) NYC is simply the World Capital that was selected by the UN as headquarters and most businesses for the existence of major activity and as a focal point. It is the center of Western culture and its economic viability is assured by the mere presence of all the institutions mentioned earlier. Real estate is in short supply and no one is making it any more- -as Mark Twain said. Thus, our investment in NYC is guaranteed to be successful. 9) The founding fathers vision, 75 years ago, that NYC was the best place for the PAA Headquarters is still true today. We should respect their foresight and go about the task of making it reality. It is inconceivable that we would make a long term decision to put our roots down in any other place when the cultural, economic, and demographic factors favor New York City the best.

Thomas Nathenas, leader of the Goniani Andartes, standing far left. THE LOWERING OF THE NAZI FLAG By Tasso Chrstian IN HERAKLION I recently traveled to Crete where I had the opportunity to interview the only two living resistance fighters from the village of Gonies, Meleviziou (near Anoyia). Eleftherios Markogianakis (Venizelos) and Billionis are now in their late 80s (early 90s) but can recall the events of the German occupation as if they occurred yesterday. They were both able to shed light on several events that have been misrepresented in books and other historical documents. This was their chance to set the record straight. The resistance fighters from the village of Gonies, Meleviziou (near Anoyia) played a significant role during the German occupation of Crete. They were known as the Goniani Andartes. They fought against the Germans, as- 12 KPHTH CRETE APRIL 2005 sisted in the capture of General Kriepe and finally accepted the withdrawal of the Germans from Heraklion. Their keen knowledge of the terrain and willingness to never surrender made them one of the fiercest resistance groups in Crete. Their actions had a direct impact on the Battle of Crete. The Goniani Andartes consisted of men from the village of Gonies and two others from neighboring villages. The Goniani Andartes relied heavily on the few men who had prior military experience. Unconventional, guerrilla-style tactics were primarily used to deter and defeat the Germans whenever possible. But in the long run ingenuity and familiarity of the mountainous region proved to be much more of an asset than experience. On 11 October 1944, the liberation of Heraklion became a reality. The previous ten days were tense as battalions of German infantry supported by artillery anticipated an attack on Heraklion by several groups of andartes. On the morning of 11 October, Colonel Andreas Nathenas, the new military representative of the government-inexile and governor of the prefecture of Heraklion, ordered several andartes groups to enter Heraklion and meet at the German headquarters by the port at 1500 hours. At the time, the Goniani Andartes were acting as bodyguards and providing personal security for Colonel Nathenas. Somehow the Goniani andartes misunderstood the order and

13 SPECIAL REPORT/ÑÅÐÏÑÔÁÆ another group. If it were not for the selfness devotion of the Goniani Andartes, I would not be here today. I, as well as others around the world owe them immensely. They made this world a better place. Their accomplishments and legacy will live on for generations as long as we continue to tell their story. We all owe it to them and to future generations to continue telling their stories of bravery and selfless devotion. The Goniani andartes epitomize the Cretan; fierce fighters who would stop at nothing to protect their family, their land and their freedom. Venizelos and Billionis are true heroes. You can see it in their eyes and feel the passion in their voices. I am honored to know them. May we continue to seek the truth, give credit to the deserving, and honor our ancestor s legacy by never forgetting Tasso Christian 2004 Update (1 March 2005): It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Eleftherios Markogianakis (Venizelos). Venizelos died on February 23, 2005 in Gonies. He will be greatly missed. I will miss his wisdom, laughter and most of all his friendship. May God bless him. Tasso Christian ( center) with Eleftherios Markogianakis (Venizelos) left and Billionis in Gonies, Crete Aug 2004 entered Heraklion at 1400 hours. They traveled in several vehicles through the city to the German headquarters. Venizelos and Billionis described the atmosphere that day as one of uncertainty. They felt alone and abandoned, as if they were on a suicide mission. As the vehicles reached the German headquarters local Cretans began to gather below the balcony where the Nazi flag continued to fly. In an unexpected spontaneous move Venizelos, Billionis, Dimitri Tsagarakis (AKA Mitsos, my grandfather), and another gentleman entered the German headquarters and proceeded to the balcony. By then the locals began chanting, take down the flag, take down the flag. Billionis described the feeling of helplessness as he and Venizelos laid down their weapons so they could lower the Nazi flag. Hundreds of trigger-happy German soldiers also gathered below waiting for orders from their superiors. As Venizelos began to lower the Nazi flag several German soldiers raised their weapons. A German officer on the balcony quickly motioned to all his soldiers not to fire. As Venizelos lowered the Nazi flag it fell to the ground. Venizelos picked it up, folded it and presented it to the German officer. He then raised a Greek flag given to him earlier that day by Colonel Nathenas. The Greek flag was taken from a local Greek school s flag post. Locals began to cheer and shout with joy. Their day of freedom had finally arrived. Only after the flag incident did the other andartes groups enter the city. From the headquarters they marched the Germans out of Heraklion and to Rethymno and handed off to APRIL 2005 KPHTH CRETE 13

15 Exhibition reveals beauty in art of cartography The Candia Creta Crete display proves value of maps By Dimitris Rigopoulos There is more to maps than meets the eye, and this was especially true back in Renaissance times, way before cartography was technically perfected. As is proved by the impressive exhibition dedicated to Crete and organized by the Cartography Archives at the National Bank Cultural Foundation, the maps of that period are a very complex subject. The Candia Creta Crete, Space and Time, 16th to 18th Century exhibition, which opened recently, is the third to be SPECIAL organized by the archives. There is so much information to be discovered in the first printed efforts to map the island of Crete valuable historical information, as well as illustrations of battles, monuments and more that one acquires an entirely new perspective on mapping. It may seem unfair, in a way, that such an important effort is lost in the ocean of events taking place daily in the capital. But Eynard Hall, where the National Bank Cultural Foundation is housed, has yet to be ac- REPORT/ÑÅÐÏÑÔÁÆ knowledged as a highly active cultural institution by Athenians. Tracing Crete s history When the rebirth of cartography kicked off in the 15th century, Crete was under Venetian rule. Through seven sections, arranged according to theme, the exhibition traces the island s history through cartographic depictions, up until the time of the Ottoman invasion. Apart from works belonging to the National Bank Cultural Foundation, the exhibition further features items on loan from the Cretan History Museum, Iraklio s Vikelaia Municipal Library, the Greek Parliament and the private collection of Theodoris and Vassilis Masselos. It will run to November 20 and will then travel to the Cretan History Museum in Iraklio. The Cartography Archives of the Land of Greece, a donation by Victor and Niove Melas, found permanent housing at Eynard Hall in January 2003, where there is a permanent exhibition hall. The rare collection includes about 200 printed maps dating from the early 16th century to the 18th century, old atlases and geography manuals as well as a copy of Rigas Feraios s Charter, which is actually on display at the current exhibition. The donation is completed by books and studies, while the Cultural Foundation itself takes care to enrich the archives with new purchases. As Victor Melas recently announced, the next exhibition by the Cartography Archives will focus on the Peloponnese. Eynard Hall, National Bank Cultural Foundation, 20 Aghiou Constantinou & Menandrou.

18 ELECTIONS05/ÅÊËÏÃÅÓ05 was in its infancy when I was its VP and then President. As a PYA officer, I 1) drafted the PYA Constitution and Bylaws, 2) secured funding for the PYA from the PAA, 3) was responsible for the PYA s first successful project (the publication of a book of mantinades) and 4) was responsible for the creation of five new youth chapters. We engineered a good foundation because the PYA has been operating continuously for 35 years. Unlike most of the youth in the PYA, I did not drop out as I grew older. I served in most every office in two adult chapters. Nationally, as PAA Scholarship Chairman, I: 1) increased the scholarship amount from $300 to $1,000, 2) required that the recipient must be a member (and not just the child or grandchild of a member), and 3) established a list of award criteria that included financial need, which did not exist prior to my tenure. As PAA Treasurer I was the first to automate the cash records of the Association. I kept accurate real time records and was able to instantaneously provide information to President Tsikoudakis about our cash balances. I initiated and carried out a system where an advance notice letter to the recipient first preceded every disbursement and then the check was accompanied by a cover letter describing the payment. During his report at the 1999 convention in Crete, George Terezakis, past Editor of the KPHTH, stated that I was the best Treasurer with whom he had worked in his 40 years in the PAA. I am very proud to be the recipient of such high praise. JAMES G. SAKLAS, Ph.D. Candidate for the Office of General Supervisor Christos Anesti! I am a second generation Cretan-American, born in Pittsburgh, PA. My Cretan roots are in Apokorona, Chania; my grandfather, Emanuel Romanias, from Kastellos, above Lake Kournas, and my grandmother, Athena Orfanaki Romania, from Kefalas, came to America in I am a product of the Pittsburgh Public Schools and went on to earn two undergraduate degrees from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, a Masters degree from Purdue University and a Ph.D. in civil engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. I was an officer in the US Navy Seabees and served in support of the 7 th Marine Regiment in Vietnam. After three years active duty, I remained in the Navy Reserve and retired with 22 years of service. After my tour in Vietnam, the Navy sent me to the Navy Base at Great Lakes, north of Chicago. It was in Chicago where I first became active in the PAA. I was a founder of the Cretan Youth of Chicago in 1970 and of the PYA as well. I have been continuously active for the past 35 years: Local Offices: President and Vice President, Cretan Youth of Chicago; President, Treasurer, and Secretary, Arkadi-Maleme, Pittsburgh; President, Treasurer, and Secretary, Cretan Association of Washington, DC National Offices: East Coast Vice-President, Pancretan Youth of America ; President, Pancretan Youth of America ; Scholarship Chairman, PAA ; Treasurer, PAA ; 2 nd Vice President, PAA I have never sought office just for the title or to get my photograph in the KPHTH or in a newspaper in Crete. In every office I held I worked for the good of the PYA/PAA. The PYA As 2 nd Vice President I developed the criteria for the selection of a new Editor, developed guidelines for the operation of, wrote several articles for, and generally supported the magazine and the efforts of the new editor. I am also the vice chair of the 75 th Anniversary Commemorative Album, for which I am contributing numerous articles and other tasks as assigned by the committee chair. I have served on the national Board during the administrations of Presidents Stamis, Tsourounis, Elliot, Tsikoudakis and Semanderes. I have proven that I can work with and for any President and any Cretan whose objective is to advance the PAA. I have demonstrated that I have no personal agenda; my only agenda is the PAA. I ask you to not vote for (or against) any candidate, including me, because you are from the same city, or from the same nomos in Crete, or some past president tells you to do so, or you re the candidate s koumbaros, or because he or she is successful in business, etc. If you vote for people solely because of such reasons, then you should not be a delegate. I want you to examine my and all the candidates credentials, our education, our PAA experience, our accomplishments in the PYA and PAA, and more importantly, seek us out to ask questions and discuss issues. Do this honestly and then, for the good of the PAA, cast an educated vote for the candidate with the most experience, best record of achievement and most suitable for the office. Thank you Jim Saklas 2 nd Vice President 18 KPHTH CRETE APRIL 2005
