Screening of two-hour film Kisses to the Children (2012), in Greek with English subtitles.  Click here to view trailer.

Introduction by director Vassilis Loules.  

Kisses to the Children is a documentary about the Jewish community in Greece based on testimonies of Greek Jewish survivors who spent the German occupation in hiding and talk about their lives.

This tribute to the once vibrant Greek Jewish communities before the war is complemented by rare archival material made in occupied Greece by German soldiers and Greek patriots.

Presented by the Modern Greek Program, supported by the Foundation for Modern Greek Studies, and co-sponsored by The Jean & Samuel Frankel Center for Judaic Studies.
