Abstract:

Relates the experiences of Elia Aelion, a Jew from Salonika born in 1918, as told to Fromer and written by her. In 1941 he fled to Athens; in 1943, when the Germans entered Athens, Aelion and his friends left the city for a suburb, where they lived for ten months in a villa whose owner agreed to rent part of it to Jews. In August 1944 they were discovered by the Germans; Aelion managed to evade arrest and to survive until the liberation. Many members of his family perished in the Holocaust. Includes a historical introduction (pp. 3-15) and notes by Fromer. Pp. 145-159 contain appendices, including a chronology of the Holocaust in Greece and statistical information on transports and the destruction of Jewish communities in Greece.
