AHEPA Denounces Attempted
Vandalism of Truman Statue
AHEPA strongly denounced the attempted vandalism  of the Harry S.
Truman Memorial Statue in Athens by left-wing extremists, announced
Supreme President Carl R. Hollister. 
"AHEPA respects and encourages freedom of speech and the rights of
individuals to gather and demonstrate peacefully," Hollister said. "However,
there are certainly more productive and effective ways to express dissent
or opposition than to resort to senseless acts of vandalism."
He added, "We commend the Hellenic Police Unit for the Reinstatement
of Order for its effort to prevent the vandalism of the Truman Statue. We
will work with the mayor of Athens and the municipality to explore measures to protect the Truman Statue, which has quite often been the target
of vandals." 

Background 
AHEPA gifted the Truman Statue on behalf of Greek Americans when it
was dedicated on May 29, 1963, before an audience of 20,000.
In his message that was read to the crowd, President John F. Kennedy
stated: "I hope this outstanding memorial, which the Order of AHEPA has Top: Extremists attempt to pull down the Truman Statue.

efforts, but will serve to remind us of the high priority President Truman
gave the progress of Greece toward economic development and social justice in peace and freedom."
Former Greek Prime Minister Constantine Caramanlis stated the importance of the Truman Doctrine at the statue's unveiling
ceremony: "If the Greeks want to survive as a free nation, they should not forget the dramatic period with which Mr. Truman's name
is linked. Should they forget it, they would deserve their fate and have no right to ask for anyone's help."
President Harry S. Truman was a member of AHEPA, joining on March 25, 1946, at ceremonies held at the White House. He
was a member of AHEPA Chapter 73, Kansas City, Mo.
