Seventy years ago (1944-2014), Greece was liberated from the Nazi occupation. The European Art Center, in recognition and memory of the thousands of Greek Jews who were brutally added to the genocide that underpinned the Nazi “Final Solution”, announces an International Poetry Competition whose theme revolves around the Greek Jews and the Holocaust.
A seven-member panel consisting of renowned personalities in arts and literature will offer three awards and twenty distinctions at a formal Soiree which will take place in June 2015 at the European Art Center in Paeanea, Attika, Greece. The Soiree and Awards ceremony will be honoured by the presence of members of the internationally-acclaimed educational program Classrooms Without Borders, based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA who will be travelling to cities and towns in Greece that had a significant Jewish community, in rememberance of the Greek Jews and Greek Christians who saved Jewish families.
