Film Screening: Kisses to the Children

Discussion with Director Vassals Loules

Five Jewish children saved by Christians in German-occupied Greece. Childhood was their Garden of Eden. Even though they spent it in hiding, even though they lost it in the shadow of the Holocaust.

Featuring documentary footage from Athens, Thessaloniki, Ioannina, Chania in Greece, and Auschwitz, Poland, five now elderly Greek-Jewish children share their stories of how they “missed the train to Auschwitz”.

Proudly presented by the Department of Art History, Department of Classics, Center for Jewish Studies, Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies, Center for the Study of Religion, and the Division of Humanities.
