About this Item

"In contrast to many Catholic and Protestant religious leaders in Europe who either supported the Nazi policy of extermination of the Jews, or did nothing to stop it, Archbishop Damaskenos of Greece formally protested the deportation of Jews. After learning of the deportation of the Thessaloniki Jews in March 1943, Damaskenos sent a letter of protest to the Germans. This letter was composed by the famous Greek poet, Angelos Sikilianos, and was signed by many members of the Athens intelligensia. Damaskenos included this passage from the Bible,'There is neither Greek nor Jew,' emphasizing that in the Greek orthodox religion, all people all the same. He described the long history of the Jews in greece, and how as exemplary citizens, they presented no threat to Germanty. He warned that one day the world woulsd hold those responsible accountable for their actions. When General Stroop, High SS and Police Leader for Greece, found out who was behind the letter, he threatened to shoot Damaskenos. The Archbishop bravely reminded the German that, 'According to the traditions of the Greek Orthodox Church, our pelates are hung and not shop. Please respect our traditions'!" This book has 277 pages and is illustrated. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever. The rear cover has a slight damp stain to it. The text is written entirely in GREEK. Overall, this is a GOOD copy of this VERY SCARCE title. Bookseller Inventory # 062332
