The Archive of the 72nd Primary School of Athens constitutes a significant recent acquisition of the JMG, as it includes structured archival content, illuminating in detail the operation of the only public Jewish school in Athens, from the early 1930’s until 1960. This is an exceptionally important source of information on the history of Jewish education in Greece, before, during and after WWII. Part of this archive, the school registry of the Jewish Primary School of Athens (1931-32) and pages of the school’s curriculum of the school year 1945: three hours per week of Hebrew and two hours of religious history for the last four classes (out of six) of primary school.
