    Ida Mordoh

    The Jewish Museum of Greece mourns the loss of Ida Mordoh who was among the first persons who worked for and participated in the creation of the JMG.

    Ida Mordoh collaborated with the late Nikos Stavroulakis, contributing crucially to the identification of people who donated items for the creation of the first core collection and its further enrichment. She remained a companion and associate of the Museum, following its course from Melidoni Street, where it was initially housed, to the apartment building on Amalia Street,  until its present location. Her interest in the Museum has remained undiminished and has often been a source of valuable narratives and memories related to the beginnings of the Museum.

    The JMG honors her memory and considers her substantial and historical contribution to its creation and subsequent course, a source of inspiration and strength for the continuation and expansion of the Museum’s research and cultural work.

    The Board of Directors and staff of the Jewish Museum of Greece would like to express their deepest sympathy with her family.
