Virtual Reception - Tuesday, January 25, 2022, 11am EST

Location: Virtual



You are cordially invited to a virtual reception honoring the Greek Righteous Among the Nations on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, 11am EST, 6pm Athens.

To commemorate the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, this event will celebrate Mayor Loukas Karrer and Metropolitan Dimitrios Chrysostomos, the heroic duo who saved the entire Greek Island of Zakynthos from the Holocaust in 1944. 


Ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, after a year that saw a worrisome increase in antisemitic incidents, this reception will bring together civic leaders and members of both the Greek and Jewish communities to demonstrate solidarity against antisemitism, and inspire present-day leaders to follow in the steps of Karrer and Chrysostomos.
Please share this email to invite your network to attend too. .


Recognizing past leaders who confronted antisemitism in its most extreme form will help inspire a new generation of leaders to similarly confront antisemitism and other forms of hate.


The Hellenic American Women’s Council (HAWC) is very proud of the Greek women who played an active role in helping save Jews during the Holocaust. Righteous Among the Nations is Princess Alice who rescued Rachel Cohen and her children by hiding them in her house for a year and Melpomeni Dina a teenager who hid six members of the Mordechai family before helping them flee to Israel.
