  • A GREEK TOWN COMMEMORATES ITS HOLOCAUST HISTORY

    ‘We keep our memories alive,’ said the mayor of Trikala, where a new memorial was recently unveiled

    On the morning of Nov. 11, 2018, a crowd of almost 200 people gathered in the center of Trikala, a Greek city located some 300 kilometers north of Athens. Conversing mainly in Greek, but also in Hebrew, English, Italian, and German, they were waiting at one of the main entrances to the old Jewish quarter to participate in the unveiling of Trikala’s Holocaust Memorial. Erected to commemorate the city’s 139 Jewish victims, the memorial is a joint initiative of the Trikala government and the city’s Jewish community.

          • Selling Nazi art, the daughter of Hitler’s architect funds foundation for Jews

            Hilde Schramm, the daughter of Albert Speer, raised money for Jewish projects in Germany

            When Hilde Schramm inherited several paintings collected by her father, Hitler’s chief architect and Armaments Minister Albert Speer, she was only sure of one thing: she did not want them.
            Despite determining that they probably had not been looted from Jews during World War II, she wanted their legacy to somehow benefit others. So she huddled with friends around a rickety green table at her home office in Berlin and came up with a plan to sell them and use the proceeds to support Jewish women’s creative projects in Germany.

              Can they? When did Hungary become the 51st state of the union? American courts have no legal authority over Hungary, and vice versa.
