Reflections on the Heroes of Salonika

We invite you to join us as we commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah). During our program we will highlight the film ‘Heroes Of Salonika’, and hear the personal, and lesser-known stories of, the Jews of Salonika, Greece.

Our conversation with the panel will include stories from guest speakers including, one of the last survivors, the film’s producer, director and editor. Their compelling tales spans from the arrival of the Nazis to Salonika, to the liberation and freedom from Auschwitz and for “a few” the return to their homeland.

As we listen to the experiences of survivors and heroes of the once large, affluent and vibrant Jewish community we will learn about:

The inspiration for the film , the psychological and religious impact on survivors, the fate of the Jewish community of Salonika after the Holocaust, and the importance of recording these stories for Jewish history.
