The Hilandar Fire of March, 2004
Early Reportage on and Response to the Fire

This page offers a repository of news and reportage on the Hilandar fire (listed by date) as posted at the time by the Friends of Mount Athos. News items recorded here were drawn from the Press as well as from our members. These old news items remain here as an archive -- please understand that links to the original news sources included within these postings may no longer be functional.

The Friends of Mount Athos are raising funds for the relief and rebuilding of Hilandar Monastery. This list of early reportage of the fire is provided here as documentation in support of FoMA's Hilandar Appeal.
