Kisses to the Children

Panel discussion with  Vassilis Loules, Film director Yasmina Bojic, Director, Camera as witness and Founder/Director UNAFF
Florentina Mocanu–Schendel,   Adjunct Professor, University of San Francisco, Cofounder of the theatre company, Collected Works. 
Hosted by Eva Prionas, Modern Greek Language Culture and Literature, Stanford Language Center
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 thousands of children, those who were never given the time to grow up.
