Miracle at Zakynthos


Miracle at Zakynthos, a film project based on our book by same name, is the untold story of the only Greek Jewish community to survive in its entirety from annihilation during the Holocaust in Greece. When instructed by the Nazi commander to submit a list of all the Jews on the island, the mayor, Loukas Carrer, and his friend Bishop Chrysostomos submitted a list with only two names – their own. Their courageous actions led Yad Vashem in Jerusalem to include them in the “Righteous Among Nations.” The Foundation has obtained survivor video testimonies from Yad Vashem and the Shoah Visual History Foundation. These oral histories provide the historical background and develop the narrative structure for the film.
