Thessaloniki, Greece, July 11, 1942, "The Black Sabbath". New photographs of that day's gathering of Greek Jews by the German occupation forces come to life by Andreas Assael; he bought them in a German flea-market recently, bought and edited them. On one of the photos Andreas recognized his father. 45.000 Greek Jews never came back from the German death camps. Only 1.100 survived.
