Join author Karen Batshaw, at the National Hellenic Museum on October 27th at 6:00 PM, for a discussion about her book Hidden In Plain Sight. A story that describes the brutal occupation of Greece by the Nazis as it follows a young Jewish woman from Thessaloniki who moves to Athens in the early years of World War II and lives as a Christian to avoid arousing suspicion. Hidden In Plain Sight shines a light on the plight of Greece’s Jews and the brave attempts of the Archbishop of Athens to protect them.
Karen Batshaw lives in Washington, DC and Williamsburg, VA. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and a Master’s degree in social work. Batshaw has always had an interest and felt a special connection to Greece and its people. It was her meeting with a Greek Jewish man who told her about his family’s survival due to the help of Orthodox Christians that began her interest into the Nazi occupation of Greece. It is her hope that this book will educate and enlighten people about the suffering of both the Jews and the Orthodox Christians during World War II.
Books will be available for purchase and signing.
