Please join us for a lecture by Vic Alhadeff OAM.

July 2024 marks 80 years since the destruction of the Jewish communities of Rhodes and the other Dodecanese islands.

The Jews of Greece experienced the best and the worst of humanity. The majority of the community of Salonika was murdered, while the entire community of Zakynthos was saved. The community of Rhodes Island – where Vic Alhadeff’s family originated – was decimated, while a Muslim diplomat rescued some of them. Alhadeff will discuss the Holocaust in Greece, including his father’s remarkable story.

Vic grew up in Zimbabwe.
His parents were born on Rhodes Island, from where 151 Alhadeffs, including his paternal grandparents, were deported to Auschwitz and murdered.
Vic has dedicated his career to championing human rights, is a non-executive director of SBS and the author of two books on South African history.
