British Actress Janet Suzman: Parthenon marbles need the sun of Athens"The marbles were violently deprived of their siblings”

Dame Janet Suzman, actress and chair of the British Committee for the reunification of the Parthenon marbles wrote an article on Saturday in Greece’s TA NEA newspaper, with which she tried to answer to the director of the British Museum, ANA reports.

“I am neither an intellect nor an academic. My position in the committee is of a simple visitor of the museum and as a visitor, I can see clearly that the marbles are in the wrong place”, Suzman noted , adding that ”they need Attica’s sun to shine on them with the background of the blue sky”.

Suzman mentioned the new Acropolis museum, adding that the marbles ”ask to be reunited with their other half at the New Acropolis Museum where a place is always waiting for them”.
