All of this emerged in the lecture I attended at Chapman College, part of series sponsored by the 1939 Club (Holocaust Survivors.) A patient of mine, Dr. Frederic Kakis, has written a book about his, and his family's, escape from the Salonika area, where most of the large Jewish community was liquidated. It is clear that the Greeks had no love for the Bulgarians, and the Bulgarians, in Greece, were effective tools of Nazi policy, but most Bulgarian Jews were spared.
I had intended to put this entry into a community called "Weird Jews" on LJ, but it is not an open community, so while my application is suspended in cyberspace, I thought I would put it in my very own journal, which is open.... to me... a secular, atheist, Humanist, Jew. I don't like to be filtered or excluded.... too much like an exclusive club, or Lake Geneva in the '40's.
