    Τhe JMG’s Temporary Exhibition “The Holocaust of Greek Jews, 1941-1944”, at the Sivitanidios School.

    On the occasion of the International Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Holocaust (January 27th), the Sivitanidios Public School of Trades & Vocations hosted the exhibition of the Jewish Museum of Greece (JMG) “The Holocaust of the Greek Jews 1941-1944”.

    The exhibition examines the situation in Greece during the Occupation, its division in three zones of occupation held by Germany, Italy and Bulgaria. After relating the first anti-Semitic measures taken by the Germans in Thessalonica it tracks the events in chronological order, presenting the fate of Jewish Communities around the country, while also mentioning the few who escaped to the Middle East or to the mountains, to join the Resistance movement, and those who managed to hide, aided by compatriots of theirs. It also explores other aspects of the Holocaust, such as the concentration camps, the survivors, the Righteous of the Nations, and the state of the Jewish Communities that were reconstituted after the war.

    The exhibition lasted from January 27th to February 7th 2020.
