Renée Molho - A Bookstore in Six Chapters

Η Ρενέ Σαλτιέλ και ο Σόλων Μόλχο μεγάλωσαν στη μεγαλύτερη εβραϊκή κοινότητα Σεφαραδιτών, τη Θεσσαλονίκη, στη σημερινή Ελλάδα. Στις αρχές του αιώνα περίπου 90.000 Εβραίοι ζούσαν εκεί, ενώ αμέσως πριν τον πόλεμο είχαν φτάσει περίπου τους 50.000 ανθρώπους. Πριν από τον πόλεμο ζούσαν εκεί περίπου 50.000 Εβραίοι. Κατά τη διάρκεια του Β' Παγκοσμίου Πολέμου, οι Γερμανοί τους συγκέντρωσαν και τους εκτόπισαν σχεδόν όλους. Δεν έμεινε σχεδόν κανείς. Μόνο λίγοι επέστρεψαν. Αυτή
είναι η ιστορία δύο Εβραίων που κατάφεραν να επιβιώσουν, χάρη σε έναν Ισπανό διπλωμάτη και μερικές πολύ γενναίες χριστιανικές οικογένειες.

Renée Saltiel and Solon Molho grew up in the greatest Sephardic Jewish community of them all, Salonica, or Thessaloniki, in today's Greece. Around 90,000 Jews lived there in its heyday, 50,000 lived there before the war. During the Second World War, the Germans rounded up and deported the city's Jews and almost none were left. Only a handful returned. This is the story of two Jews who did manage to survive, thanks to a Spanish diplomat and some very brave Christian families.
