Pan Macedonian Association of Melbourne and Victoria and the Australian Institute of Macedonian Studies celebrate 100 years of the liberation of Macedonia. In collaboration with other Pan Macedonian Unions, they will publish a 900-page-long book in English titled “Macedonian Hellenes in Oceania (Australia and New Zealand)”.
The author of the historic book will be Professor Anastasios M. Tamis of Notre Dame University of Australia. Dr. Tamis presented his new book “Greeks in the Far East” a few days ago with great success and is very famous among members of the Greek Community in Australia.
The book will consist of two parts – the main text and the appendix-index of the main characters. The chronicle of Macedonian immigration, the financial situation of the Macedonians, the cultural impact they had on the far continent, as well as the relationship between Expatriates and Greeks and political problems with FYROM, will be analyzed by the distinguished professor.
The issue will also represent, through 600 pictures, the story of members of the Macedonian Community of Oceania. The survey and collection of the data will continue until March 2013, while the book is expected to be published in October 2013.
In order to collect a large amount of photos, data and information, the institution calls on Greek Macedonians and Macedonian Associations to complete a specific questionnaire. They also call on the founders of the Associations to write a report about the story and the action of their organizations and post it to the offices of the Pan Macedonian Association.
