Summary:
During the 19th century, large numbers of Greeks began to immigrate to the United States to overcome economic hardship or escape mandatory military service. Though many were raised as farmers, new arrivals tended to gather in large cities where industry jobs were available. Greek Americans formed tightly knit communities in which the Greek Orthodox Church played an important role in maintaining their religious, social and cultural identity. Greek Americans have made significant contributions to American society, particularly in the areas of politics, architecture and theater, and have shown tremendous economic success, finding ways to begin anew and thrive in a different culture. Part of the Multicultural Peoples of North America Video Series, a compelling collection that celebrates the heritage of different cultural groups in North America.

Only available in the US.
