The Greek Ministry of Education has included in its curriculum a lesson about the heroic martyrdom of 20 Copts and one Ghanaian who refused to deny their faith in Sirte, Libya, at the hands of Coptic martyrs Daesh, also known as Islamic State, IS, in 2015.
The Greek curriculum also tackled the history of the Coptic Orthodox Church, as well as the visit of Pope Tawadros II to Greece in 2016, and his meeting with members of the Holy Synod of the Greek Orthodox Church.
The curriculum also praises the role of Christians in the Middle East and their persistence to spread the message of love and tolerance through their forgiveness of those who persecute them.
