“There is Neither Greek Nor Jew”: The Heroic Duo Who Saved an Entire Island From the Holocaust
A Reception in Honor of Loukas Karrer & Dimitrios Chrysostomos for International Holocaust Remembrance Day
January 25th, 2022, at 11:00 AM ET / 6:00 PM Athens
In honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day and in celebration of these incredible community leaders and the 43rd anniversary of their Righteous Among the Nations designation, we are proud to join Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) and other organizations to host a virtual reception honoring Loukas Karrer and Dimitrios Chrysostomos. During the Greek Presidency of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), this educational event will highlight the history of Hellenic-Jewish relations and the importance of strengthening those bonds in facing antisemitism. During the Greek IHRA presidency, recognizing past leaders who confronted antisemitism in its most extreme form will help inspire a new generation of civic and religious leaders to similarly confront antisemitism and other forms of hate.
