The southern Aegean port city was once home to a large Jewish community.
A plaque in Hebrew and Greek, ending with the word shalom.
With 100,000 photos of 61,022 tombstones.
For kosher salami and pastrami, naturally.
Once home to a large, if overlooked, community.
Promising to buy books in synagogue?
Yom Kippur in a waning community.
Greek authorities prevented Jews from rebuilding.
The canary in the coal mine?
And the story of its repression.
A sustainable relationship cannot be built on hypocrisy and silence.
Was it a synagogue?
Memories of a forgotten Turkish community.
Hanging on despite growing anti-Semitism and assimilation.
