Documentary Tells Little-known Story of Nazis Murdering the Jews of Kastoria [trailer]


A screening of the documentary titled Trezoros: The Lost Jews of Kastoria Greece is taking place the week of November 25 through December 1, at the Laemmle Music Hall Theater in Los Angeles.

Directed by Lawrence Russo and co-directed and produced by Larry Confino, the documentary chronicles the little-known story of the destruction of what was once a thriving Sephardic Jewish community in Greece in the town of Kastoria, where Christians and Jews lived side-by-side for over 2,000 years.

The tapestry of the town of Kastoria was forever changed when the invasion of the Axis forces took over Greece and eventually sent the Jewish population to its death at Nazi concentration camps.

The survivors themselves tells their stories in Trezoros which is accompanied by never-before-seen archival footage of the devastating events during World War II.
