‘Life against the odds’ – A performance by Anna Conomos – Fully booked
Thursday 1 February at 6pm
A fusion of dramatic storytelling, songs and music, Life against the odds is a powerful performance of real life narratives of the Jews in Thessalonika, Greece during the Holocaust.
There are very few Greek Jews left in Thessalonika today and only a handful that have living memories of the Holocaust and experienced concentration camps. Anna has conducted extensive research interviewing the last survivors and her performance is inspired by their stories and those of the families that hid Jews during the Nazi occupation of Thessalonika, 1941-1944.
Anna is an internationally renowned and award winning performance storyteller of Greek heritage who spent her childhood in Australia before moving to England.
