We were deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Rosa Asser. Rosa Asser and her family have supported the JMG work in many ways and in various capacities. Within the Museum family she is better known as Rozina Pardo, the hidden child of the Occupation, who shared her childhood odyssey with courage and strength, as many times as she was asked, with the museum audience, with the teachers in the annual seminars of the JMG, with pupils and students, tirelessly serving the memory and education on the Holocaust, in her own unique way. With the support of her original childhood diary,  kindly donated to the JMG, her story, which was first presented with another 15, in the exhibition “Hidden Children in Occupied Greece” in 2003, along with her active, dynamic speech, inspired many with the values ​​of life, dignity, respect and solidarity. A film, interviews, speeches and presentations in Greece and abroad, made her a worthy voice, widely heard for years, ably representing all those who were violently silenced by the Holocaust.

The Museum family bids farewell to Rosa and wishes her a good journey to the realm of peace. Her sweet smile will never be forgotten…

We would like to express the sincere sympathy of the board and staff of the Jewish Museum of Greece to her bereaved family.
