Film Screening: Trezoros, The Lost Jews of Kastoria
Wednesday, June 7, 7:15PM
Trezoros (Ladino/Judeo Spanish term of endearment meaning “Treasures”), an emotionally complelling first-person documentary, chronicles-- through never before seen archival footage-- one of many former Sephardic communities which had existed in Greece before World War II. Kastoria, an idyllic lakeside village, saw Jews and Christians living in harmony for over two millennium. October of 1940 saw Axis forces break through Greek defenses, eventually dooming the Jewish community that had existed since the times of the Roman Empire.
Running time: 94 minutes in English, Greek, Hebrew, and Ladino with English subtitles.
