The film “Kisses to the Children” in Athens and Thessaloniki

The film “Kisses to the Children” by Vassilis Loules will be screened in Athens from Thursday, February 7, at the Greek Film Archive, and in Thessaloniki from Sunday, February 17, and then every Saturday and Sunday at Olympian.

Five Greek-Jewish children who were saved by Christian families during the German Occupation, five “Hidden Children” who lived in total silence, tell their stories. Stories of terror, anguish and confusion but also stories of salvation and carefree childhood into the arms of strangers. Secret Gardens of Eden, nests of love away from the horror of the Holocaust. Five children were forced to mature abruptly.
Rosina, Iossif, Eftyhia, Shelly and Marios grew old, carrying the memory of those children who were never given time to grow up.
The movie focuses on these persons, revealing secret aspects of their lives and invaluable personal documents. It also depicts the life of the Greek Jewish Communities before the War, complemented with rare images of Occupied Greece from archival material, as well as amateur films by German soldiers and illegal footage shot by Greek patriots.
