Dr. Kathleen Cohen will present images of art works that tell a story of the Balkans, including delightful figures created over 20,000 years ago, beautiful gold objects buried in Thracian tombs, and images of King Phillip of Macedon and his famous son Alexander. Journey through images of the Romans, followed by Eastern Christians with their Cyrilic script and magnificent icons. Images illustrate resistance to the invasions of the Moslems and the Fascists, followed by the takeover and fall of the Communists. The whirlwind tour concludes with images of the people.
