This book investigates the history of Jews and the Holocaust in Greece. It examines the emergence of modern Greece, its chronological and territorial complexities during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and the major political themes of Greek history. The book explores the story of the Jews in Greece from antiquity and how they adjusted to the realities in the Balkans after World War I as well their response to World War II. It also discusses the Jewish response to the occupation of separate areas of Greece by Germany, Italy, and Bulgaria; how the Jews structured their communities in diaspora; the deaths of Jews on their way to Treblinka and Auschwitz during the war; the Jewish contribution to the Greek Resistance against Axis Occupation; the potential and the actual assistance that was proffered to the Greek Jews during the Axis Occupation and its aftermath; and local problems which affected Greek Jewry during the last year of World War II and the beginning of the Greek civil war.
