“Hidden Children in Occupied Greece”

September 2003 saw the opening of the exhibition “Hidden Children in Occupied Greece” at the Jewish Museum of Greece. The exhibition explores the subject of hidden Jewish children during the Occupation, through sixteen stories of youngsters from all over Greece.

The stories cover the wide range of experiences, developments and outcomes that these unfortunate wartime children suffered. Photographs, toys, a variety of household objects, exercise books and diaries from those hard years illustrate the details of the personal accounts and underline their authenticity.

The exhibition functioned as the focal point of a series of exhibitions, publications, events and educational activities on the same subject, which ran until the beginning of 2005, making this one of the most significant projects the J.M.G. has produced on the Holocaust.
