Dear SW List, and Stefan!
You are right. The attached sign, which represents Greece on our web
site at the moment, is our old sign for Greece here in the US.
Sooo...if your Deaf German signers know the sign used in Greece, please
send it to us, since I do not have contact with the Greek person who
gave me the files...He is in the Greek army, and it has been over two
years since we communicated...Anyone know the international sign for
GREECE? Val ;-)
