The Historical Archive of Refugee Hellenism of the Municipality of Kalamaria is in Northern Greece, the only public body involved in the search, rescue of historical documents and dissemination of the history of refugees. The subject of the investigation is: the refugees of the Asia Minor Disaster, the Hellenism of East Rumelia, Istanbul, Imbros and Tenedos, the Greek Cypriot refugees after the Turkish invasion and occupation in 1974, as well as the Greek expatriates.
The HARH, recognizing the value of volunteering and constantly seeking to stoke its relationship with modern society is open to volunteers who wish to offer their services to it. Until now, a number of volunteers have been employed, who, in collaboration with the permanent or temporary staff, have produced work with impressive results, both qualitatively and quantitatively. Thus, it turns out that with the appropriate guidance and with the resources of willingness, enthusiasm, special knowledge and individual skills, volunteers can become a force to be reckoned for our organization.
In the same time, the volunteers themselves can benefit in various ways (CV enrichment, knowledge and experience acquisition, internship in the subject of study, exploitation of leisure time, strengthening interpersonal relations).
The Historical Archive of Refugee Hellenism organizes a program of voluntary work in The Archives – Librarianship and invites students and graduates of the university departments to participate: 1. Archives, Librarianship & Museumology of the Ion University, 2. Archives, Librarianship & Information Systems of the International University of Greece, 3. Archives, Librarianship & Information Systems of the University of Western Attica.
The volunteers will deal: A. with the cataloguing of old and new titles of the HARH with the management software KOHA, B. with the classification and archiving of the municipal archive of Kalamaria and other archival collections.
The voluntary work will take place under the guidance of the archivist of the HARH, Mrs. Angeliki Liponis and will take place in the halls of the HARH and in the area of the Municipality of Kalamaria. The team of volunteers will include up to 7 people, whose selection will be done in order of priority. The minimum working time in this program is 150 hours, which should be completed within 3 months. The working days and hours will be in the morning and will be discussed at the first meeting of the volunteer group. Program duration: 10 November 2020 – 10 January 2021. A certificate of participation in the program and a letter of recommendation will be provided by the HARH.
