FRIENDS & DONORS

Association of Greek Friends

Σύλλογος Ελλήνων Φίλων

The Association of Friends of the Jewish Museum of Greece played a decisive role in the establishment and development of the Museum, the acquisition of its legal status and its housing in a privately owned neoclassical building.

Today the role of the Association has changed to ensure the future of the Museum, actively contributing not only to finding resources but also to the dissemination of the Museum’s work:

The story of the 2300 years of Jewish presence in Greece. The excellent thematic exhibitions it organizes. The regular organization of Student educational visits to the “Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum”. The EME’s participation in important European programs and campaigns of international organizations on occasions such as the International Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Holocaust, the continuous fight against anti-Semitism. The participation in the celebration of the 200 years since the Revolution of 1821. The organization of educational seminars for teachers on the teaching of the Holocaust and seminars for members of the security forces on anti-racist education. The Association currently has around 150 members, who, both with their regular moral and financial contribution, and with the donation of objects for the EME collection, contribute in a moving way to the achievement of the Museum’s goals.

Benefactors

The Jewish Museum of Greece owes a lot to its benefactors, whose donations made possible not only its establishment and survival, but also its continuous development into a modern Museum of high standards. The Greek State and official bodies of Greek Jewry have mainly taken care of and contributed to the Museum with their sponsorships, while donations from private individuals are also important. The names of the benefactors are honored in the Museum by placing honorary plaques or by dedicating certain rooms and areas of the exhibition.
