In association with the Jewish Museum of Greece, the Cervantes Institute in Athens  presents “Greek Jewish Holocaust Survivors,” an exhibition of photographic portraits by Artemis Alcalay. The show opens on January 20 and runs through March 19. The project began in 2012, when the artist began researching and taking photographs of members of Greek Jewish communities who survived deportation and Nazi camps. The exhibition also features a section on Sephardic Jews who survived the Holocaust due to the efforts of Spanish Consul Sebastian Romero de Radigales, who issued them with Spanish passports and insisted on their safe transfer from Germany’s Bergen-Belsen concentration camp to Spain. Opening hours are Mondays to Fridays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
