“Through the Lens of Nissim Levis: A Family, an Era” Exhibition
WHAT: Dr. Nissim Levis lived during a unique moment in history: the last years of the Ottoman Empire and the following years of turmoil and transition as the world changed forever; including the small Greek town of Ioannina, where Levis lived and photographed his society evolving around him. His photographs and family heirlooms reveal an equal parts heart warming and devastating image of an affluent and loving family that would go on to be immeasurably impacted by the Holocaust just a few years later. The Jewish Museum of Greece offers this illuminating photographic exhibition in partnership with Levis’ descendants that creates a magical glimpse into a pivotal historical moment.
WHEN: Until October 5
WHERE: Jewish Museum of Greece
