In May of 2018, Andreas Georgiou recounted his story to a packed audience at Johnson Chapel, Amherst College. In a wide-ranging interview with Ted Truman ’63 and Professor Geof Woglom, the crowd learned of the relentless persecution of a gentle and humble man, who uprooted his family and left a satisfying and stable role at the International Monetary Fund to help his country during the “Greek debt crisis” of 2009.
The standing ovation at the end of the conversation made clear that Andreas had impressed everyone present with his humility, courage, gentle humor, and still – his love for Greece herself, despite his personal trials and tribulations.
This website was created by Andreas’ classmates from the Amherst class of 1983. We want to join with others who have supported his cause – and create an online presence where supporters from all walks of life can learn of his story and receive updates on progress. The motto of Amherst College is Terras Irradient: To Light the World. Andreas personified this motto when he shed light on the reality of Greek economic statistics in 2010. We aspire to do the same by shining a light on this unjust persecution of a good man.
