Stanford University Hosts "Kisses to the Children" Film Screening

  • Written by 

Stanford University is offering a screening of Kisses to the Children on Thursday, November 6th, 2014 at 6:30 p.m.

The movie is directed by Vassilis Loules, who will offer a panel discussion after viewing. The event is free and open to the public with a reception to follow. The evening is hosted by Eva Prionas of the Modern Greek Language Culture and Literature, Stanford Language Center.

As stated on the leading California University's website, the film's synopsis is, "Five Greek-Jewish children, who were saved by Christian families during the German Occupation, five 'hidden children' who lived in total silence, tell their stories. Stories of terror, anguish and confusion but also stories of salvation and carefree childhood into the arms of strangers. Secret Gardens of Eden, nests of love away from the horror of the Holocaust. Five children were forced to mature abruptly. Rosina, Iossif, Eftyhia, Shelly and Marios grew old, carrying the memory of thousands of children, those who were never given the time to grow up."
