UCLA Hellenic Center Events Offer a Timely Focus on Jewish Greece

LOS ANGELES — On March 1, Greece will assume the Presidency of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. To mark this occasion, UCLA’s SNF Center for the Study of Hellenic Culture is joining with other organizations in hosting a ten-day virtual event series, Heritage and Memory: A Focus on Jewish Greece.

Events in the series include a conversation with Greece’s first Jewish mayor, the mayor of Ioannina, introduced by the Ambassador from Greece to the United States, a tour of the only Romaniote synagogue in the Western Hemisphere, and free film screenings from the Los Angeles Greek Film Festival. The events, open to the public, run from January 27 to February 6.

The SNF Center for the Study of Hellenic Culture at UCLA, a hub for teaching and research in anthropology, archaeology, art history, classics, digital humanities, Greek, history, and philosophy, received a foundational $5 million grant from SNF in 2017 and launched in 2020.
