Disclaimer and corrections to the Sakal Times’ article: Roman Gerodimos lives in London, not Athens (although he grew up there). The Human Library started in Scandinavia, not US universities (although it’s been used by many of them). Dr Gerodimos is not affiliated with the Human Library organisation and was not involved with hosting the Human Library in Athens (although he was inspired by it and has hosted several Human Library sessions in Salzburg and Bournemouth).
