Ship Jumpers: An Unspoken Chapter of Greek Immigration to the United States - The Pappas Post

Proud to feature Haverford College Professor of History Alexander Kitroeff who shares an important story of an unspoken chapter of Greek immigration to the United States — when thousands of men jumped ship in search of the American Dream.

Descendants of Greek immigrants in America have long boasted that their ancestors came legally. Immigration history questions that belief.

Opinion: The Greeks Value Age; America Could Learn Something From Them in This Pandemic - The Pappas Post

"In Greek society, elders and good health are equally valued. Happy Birthday wishes include 'may you live to be 100,' and every meal begins with 'to your health.' It’s easy to assume that these values have resulted, as of April 28, in only 2,534 confirmed cases and 136 deaths, one of the lowest counts in the European Union."

My mother turned 70 recently. What saddens me is that America is not well-equipped to handle her should she get COVID-19 during the pandemic.

Wild Abandon: A Journey to the Deserted Places of the Dodecanese' (Bradt Travel Guides (Travel Literature))

BOOK PICK

'There's something about abandoned places which moves me and captures the imagination.' So says seasoned travel writer Jennifer Barclay Books as she walks with her dog and her backpack through the deserted spaces of the Dodecanese, islands that were once bustling but are now half forgotten and reclaimed by the wild due to a mix of misfortune and the lure of opportunity elsewhere.

Join her on a journey through abandoned villages and farms, cave-houses and captains' mansions, the homes of displaced Muslim fishermen and poets, as she discovers beauty in the ruins, emptiness and silence, and inspiration in the stories of people's lives.

A long-term resident of Greece, Jennifer Barclay spent more than four years researching Wild Abandon, visiting islands multiple times and talking to local people to hear their stories. She travels from the very west to the very east of the Dodecanese, from the very south almost to the very north, taking in some of the smallest and the biggest islands, and highlighting different stories along the way to show the complex history behind these havens of tranquillity.
