An untold story of courage and compassion
WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, December 30, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Wondrous tales of noble heroism and self-sacrifice have sometimes pierced the evil of the Holocaust, but few are more compelling than the heroism of the Greek Christians of Zakynthos. Led by their Bishop and Mayor, these ‘ordinary people’ hid their Jewish neighbors and saved them from certain death — a rarified example of humanity in the face of tyranny that will inspire for generations. Deno Seder has performed a great service to history by his riveting work and careful research.”
Rabbi Meyer H. May, Executive Director, Simon Wiesenthal Center
"Any student of World War II and the Holocaust– in fact, any student of history– should read this book. It is a testament to the human spirit and to the courage of two men who were willing to risk their own lives to save the Jewish community of the Greek island of Zakynthos. And they succeeded!"
Michael Dukakis, Former Governor of Massachusetts and candidate for president
“The fact that not a single Jew was deported from the island of Zakynthos stands as an anomaly in the tragic history of Jews under the Nazi regime. Miracle at Zakynthos uncovers a little-known story of World War II in compelling detail.”
Abraham H. Foxman, former National Director, Anti-Defamation League
“Thank you for your unique book, Miracle at Zakynthos. Zakynthos is one of the few places in the world that, due to the heartfelt dedication of Bishop Chrysostomos and Mayor Loucas Carrer, succeeded in saving all the island’s population from a terrible massacre. I was happy to read about this ray of light. I hope and pray that this book will become a beacon to humanity and inspire dedication to our fellow man.”
Rabbi David Lau, Chief Rabbi of Israel
"In this well-researched and documented collection of firsthand accounts and historical texts, we witness the great spiritual stature of our not-so-distant forebears. This book serves as a painful, albeit powerful reminder of the intrepid bravery shown by the hierarchs, priests and Greek people in the face of inhumane threats against their Jewish neighbors."
Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew
