A Short History of the Jews of Greece


Nikos Stavrolakis was one of the founders and director of the Jewish Museum in Greece from 1977 until 1993. During that time he was responsible for creating the basic collection of the museum consisting of religious, ethnic and historical artifacts-the sole remnants of a 2,400 year Jewish presence in Greece. He is the author of several books of Judeo-Greek Interest including an important guide to "Jewish Sites and Synagogues of Greece", a book on Judaeo-Greek cookery, "Cookbook of the Jews of Greece" and several other works. He has also followed a seperate career as a painter and illustrator and his works have been exhibited widely in the USA, UK, Europe and Israel. Of lesser importance to the reader, he was my ancient history teacher in highschool.

His translation and introduction to the book Athens-Auschwitz is the basis of this website. The book was written by Errikos Sevillias, a survivor of the Nazi death camps and found among his papers when he was struck and killed by a motorcycle in 1974. The book is one of the most heart rendering and enlightening books I have ever read.

No you may not ask. The point of the post is within the post itself. I probably wanted people to actually go to the link and read the entire thing :)

Mostly to show that Jews everywhere and everywhere they go on about the holohoax, no matter how little to do with the holohoax the host nation happens to have had. In this case Greece. Why oh why do i have to force feed people?
