“Something special... a discerning historical document about little known aspects of the war itself” —

A coastal city renowned for its idyllic beauty, Kastoria was once home to a harmonious and vibrant population of Jews and Christians. Illuminating the individual stories of the Sephardi Jews forced from their homes, this carefully crafted documentary serves as a tribute, and reminder of, the many displaced communities afflicted by the Holocaust. Using never-before-seen archival footage and interviews with survivors scattered across the diaspora, Trezoros stitches together a compelling and affecting portrait of what was once a dynamic Jewish community.

Screening with introduction by Shira’s Journey’s Director Carol Gordon.
