The exhibition Sylvia by Viktor Koen is presented from today till January 2011 in the Jewish Museum of Athens. The exhibition is a collection of photos that were shot by Viktor Koen in spring 2004 in former Nazi concentration camps in Polland and it was named after the grandmother of Koen, a member of the Jewish community of Thessaloniki, who survived Auschwitz.
"Although for me it was a visit with personal dimensions, the photos show places totally released from humans and life", said Viktor Koen, who mostly quested "the symmetry and the oder that made these camps work". The exhibition Sylvia is included in the annual seminar of the Jewish Museum for teachers, entitled "Teaching about the Holocaust in Greece".
The exhibition will last till 21st January 2011 and will be open from Monday to Friday (9 am till 2.30 pm) and in Sunday (10 am till 2 pm).
