Presentation on the occasion of the release of Karina Lampsa’s and Yakov Schiby’s new book, in cooperation with Kapon Editions…
The Rescue: The world’s silence, the resistance in the ghettos and the camps, the Greek Jews during the Occupation years, offers a new narrative on the persecution and the rescue of the Jews in the Third Reich, which overturns stereotypes and myths, and gives most timely food for thought. Between 1939 and 1943, hundreds of thousands of Jews were trapped in over 400 ghettos in the occupied lands of Eastern Europe. By the summer of 1944, all the ghettos had been evacuated and most of the prisoners had been exterminated.
Speaking at the event will be: Rafail Moissis (Vice President of the Foundation for Economic & Industrial Research), Andreas Pantazopoulos (Adjunct Professor, Department of Political Sciences, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) and the authors. Moderator: Nikos Bakounakis, journalist, Substitute Professor at Panteion University.
