International Holocaust Remembrance Day Events in Rhodes


In Rhodes, the Jewish Community promoted the on-line projection of the documentary “Samuel Modiano – The Mission. From Rhodes to Auschwitz”, produced by the Stamatiou Foundation. The film (with Greek, English and French subtitles) reconstructs the story of Samy Modiano, one of the few remaining Holocaust survivors, who was deported at the age of 13.  

In addition, on the occasion of this year’s time proximity of the Holocaust Remembrance day to the festivity of Tu Bishvat, the Jewish Community of Rhodes planted 15 trees in the ‘Forest of Memory’ of the island, established on the burned wooded area of Kandyli-Tsairi.
