The American Jewish Committee of Houston and the Hellenic Professional Society of Texas, under the auspices of the Consulate of Greece in Houston invite you to a lecture by
Dr. Peter Stavrianidis
"The Untold Story of the Greek Jews:
A Journey of Glory, Tradition and Struggle for Survival"
During his presentation Dr. Stavrianidis will cover the historical background of the Greek Jews, Romaniote and Sephardic, and their struggle for survival throughout the demographic and territorial changes that have occurred in this very complex region of the Balkans – especially with the emergence of the Modern Greek state and the horrific carnage of the Holocaust.
Dr. Peter Stavrianidis has done extensive research on the history of Greek Jewry and is in the process of publishing his findings. Besides being a successful entrepreneur running his family business as a 4th generation jeweler/gemologist, Dr. Stavrianidis is also an educator teaching as an adjunct professor while conducting a post-doctorate research on the subject of “Identity and Integration of Greek Jews in Contemporary Greece” in conjunction with the Panteion University of Athens, Greece.
