Reconstituting Greek Jewry after the War  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Presenter: Katerina Kralova, Visiting Fellow, Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum / BECES / Institute of International Studies / Charles University, Prague

During the Second World War approximately 60,000 Jews of Greece perished, most being murdered in Auschwitz. But who were those Jews who tried to re-establish themselves in Greece after the Holocaust? To what extent did they manage to restore their personal, communal, educational, and social institutions? Did they seek punishment of the perpetrators? Was the Greek civil war the reason why the survivors thought about emigration? These questions will form the backbone of Dr. Kralova's talk on postwar Jewish life in Greece. Co-sponsored by James Madison College, the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities, Peace and Justice Studies, and the Center for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies.
