The presentation will analyse how the Jewish community of Thessaloniki is mentioned and remembered, by the community itself, by the Greek state and the local government, as well as by Israelis of Greek descent and by Israeli society in general. Interesting discrepancies can be found in historical “facts”. Furthermore,a comparison will be made between being Jewish in Salonica today and being of Greek descent in Israel today.
