Between the Ottoman Empire and Modern Greece: The Fate of Salonica  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Dr. Devin E. Naar, University of Washington. From 1492 until the twentieth century, the city of Salonica--once part of the Ottoman Empire and today the second biggest city in Greece--was home to the largest community of Ladino-speaking Sephardic Jews in the world. This talk focuses on how this once-thriving Jewish community grappled with the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and the rise of modern Greece prior to the devastation of the Holocaust. Dr. Devin E. Naar is Isaac Alhadeff Professor of Sephardic Studies and Associate Professor of History and Jewish Studies at the University of Washington.
