Holocaust Remembrance Day Commemoration with Speaker Solomon Kofinas 

The  Eleanor Leff Jewish Women’s Resource Center Steering Committee is pleased to host a special presentation by Solomon Kofinas who will speak about his experiences during World War II.

Solomon Kofinas was born in Athens, Greece in 1936. He was orphaned at the age of six after losing most of his family during the Nazi occupation in World War II. Solomon and his brother Zino survived with the help of a Greek Orthodox Christian Hatzi family.  In 1955, Solomon emigrated to the United States where he married another Holocaust survivor, raised two children and is now a proud grandfather and great -grandfather.

Presently, Solomon is an active docent of the Kehila Kedosha Janine Romaniote Synagogue and Museum in N.Y.C. (the only one of its kind in the Western Hemisphere), where he provides weekly tours to visitors and school groups and lectures on the history of the Jews in Greece.
