AHI Co-sponsors Exhibit on Greek Jewish Resistance during WWII

The American Hellenic Institute (AHI) has co-sponsored “Synagonistis: Greek Jews in the National Resistance,” an exhibit presented by the Embassy of Greece that tells the story of Greek Jewish resistance during World War II.

The exhibition officially opened April 21, 2015 at the Washington Hebrew Congregation, Washington, DC. It runs daily, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and through to May 26, 2015.

“AHI has always looked to highlight Greece’s role in World War II and particularly in the resistance against the Nazis,” AHI President Nick Larigakis said. “The Greek Jews played one of the most active roles in the fight against Nazi occupation and we are proud to highlight the importance of this fight by helping to support this exhibit. Congratulations to Christos Failadis, press counselor and the Embassy of Greece for organizing such a wonderful event.”

The embassy presented the exhibit jointly with the Jewish Museum of Greece and the Secretariat General for Communication. In addition to AHI, co-sponsors include: AHEPA, B’nai B’rith International, American Friends of the Jewish Museum of Greece, and Athina Balta Law Group LLC.
