“Through the Lens of Nis­sim Le­vis: A Fam­ily, an Era,” an ex­hi­bi­tion at the Jewish Mu­seum of Greece through Oc­to­ber 5, fo­cuses on pho­to­graphs taken by Dr Nis­sim Le­vis­taken dur­ing the pe­riod from the fi­nal years of Ot­toman rule (1898-1913) to 1930. Part of a three-year pro­gram or­ga­nized by the JMG and the Ger­man Em­bassy in Athens, the ex­hi­bi­tion al­lows the vis­i­tor a glimpse into the life of a prom­i­nent fam­ily in the beau­ti­ful town of Ioan­nina, north­ern Greece, on the eve of WWII, when the great ma­jor­ity of its Jewish in­hab­i­tants were mur­dered. The de­scen­dants of Le­vis’s fam­ily not only of­fered their con­struc­tive co­op­er­a­tion and sub­stan­tial fam­ily re­search, but kindly agreed to loan the mu­seum heir­looms from their cher­ished fam­ily col­lec­tion for the pur­pose of the ex­hi­bi­tion. These in­clude per­sonal ob­jects as well as Le­vis’s stereo­scopic photo viewer, all dis­played to­gether with rel­e­vant his­tor­i­cal ma­te­rial from the JMG col­lec­tions. Open­ing hours are Mon­days to Fri­days from 9 a.m. to 2.30 p.m. and Sun­days from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jewish Mu­seum of Greece, 39 Nikis, Syn­tagma, tel 210.322.5582, www.jew­ish­mu­
