About the Author

Alexander Moissis grew up in Greece, close to his father's Romaniote Jewish and his mother's Orthodox Christian families. He studied electrical engineering, computer science and management science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, gaining four degrees before moving to Silicone Valley. He lives in California, where he works in English, reads in French and multiplies in Greek. Difficult to describe in one word - rather like his great-grandmothers' uncle, Nissim D. Levis. Mark A. Mazower is a British historian and writer, specialising in modern Greece, 20th century Europe and international history. He is the Ira D. Wallach Professor of History at Columbia University, and is also currently the director of the Heyman Center for the Humanities at Columbia.

Reviews

In March of 1944, the Jews of Ioannina, north-western Greece, Romaniote Jews who had been an essential part of the city's fabric since Byzantine times, were rounded up and deported to Auschwitz. Nine out of ten did not return. Hiette was one of the only members of the Levis family who survived, having gone into hiding on the outskirts of Athens. When she returned with her husband, Asher Moissis, in 1945 to see what had happened to the family house, she found the building had been looted and torched. Only the facade was intact. But that is not the end of the story. This painstakingly researched book, a collection of the restored images, [...] has captions in English and Greek, a pithy and poignant preface by the historian Mark Mazower, and an introduction by Moissis, who describes himself, charmingly, as one who "reads in French, works in English and multiplies in Greek". -- A E Stallings * Times Literary Supplement *
