Description & Details

Farewell to Salonica Description

In this enchanting and moving memoir, Leon Sciaky describes his childhood before the FirstWorld War in a prosperous, loving Jewish family in the cosmopolitan city of Salonica (nowThessaloniki in Greece). Under the Ottoman Empire, the city's diverse communities - Jews,Muslim Turks, Orthodox Greeks and Bulgarians - met, traded and lived alongside each otherday-to-day in an atmosphere of tolerance.Farewell to Salonica offers a fascinating insight into a lost society in which an older tradition ofmutual respect was finally overcome by the pressures of nationalism and war, the after-effects ofwhich are felt in the region to this day.
