Invitation to Holocaust Remembrance Day of the Greek Jewry - Thursday, Jan 21, 2021 at 6:00 PM EST

Brothers:


We cordially invite you with others to this year’s commemoration of the International Day of Holocaust Remembrance. It will be under the auspices of the Embassy of Greece in Washington, DC and with the participation of every Greek Consular Authority in the USA on a Pan-American level. “The Good Shepherds” is a periodic exhibition of the Jewish Museum of Greece (JMG), the idea for which originated with Mr. Samuel (Makis) Matsas, President of the Museum. A child of the Occupation, who survived thanks to the timely escape of his parents and the generosity of friends and strangers, Mr. Matsas asked the museum to research the conditions under which senior members of the Christian clergy and eminent rabbis acted in various ways to assist persecuted Jews during the Nazi Occupation.


The exhibit showcases the positive actions, gestures of sympathy or support, and rescue attempts, no matter how large or small, revealed by JMG research, to honor those involved at the time and inspire us today. It also aims to highlight the importance of individual choice within an extremely complex, suffocating, and often contradictory context. The stories are illustrated by original artefacts belonging to some of the senior clerics featured in the exhibition. The exhibition has been realized within the framework of a three-year-long programmatic cooperation between the Museum and the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Athens.


We wish this event will, once more, especially under the current COVID circumstances, unequivocally reaffirm our common and relentless commitment to Hellenism and to stand against anti-Semitism. Your presence at this virtual event on Thursday, January 21, 2021 at 6:00 pm EST is essential in spreading our mutual message. Registration is required to attend via the link here.


Fraternally yours,


Brother Lou Katsos

AHEPA District 6 Governor
