Thessaloniki Tour

Thessaloniki, Greece, 2019

The Jewish Museum Frankfurt commissioned urKultur to curate a 4-day visit to the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki for their patrons and donors. Through a series of tailor-made lectures, interviews, and walks, the group was given an insight into both the Jewish and multicultural culture that characterised Salonica/Thessaloniki over the centuries, and that was almost entirely destroyed during the Holocaust. Meetings with the Mayor Yiannis Boutaris and President of the Jewish Community, David Saltiel, as well as with eye-witnesses and students, provided unique insights and perspectives.
