Abstract
Thessaloniki is a city with a very rich and multicultural history. Among the different groups of people living in the city for centuries, the largest one was the group of the Sephardi Jews. Unfortunately, in modern Thessaloniki the rich Jewish past is not that evident. Aim of this thesis is to search for imprints and memories of the Jewish past in today's city and tries to unfold the reasons why Thessaloniki seems to have hidden its past. As we find out, there are a few imprints and memories remaining and the reasons of concealment prove to be multifaceted.
Abstract (Greek, Modern (1453-))
Η Θεσσαλονίκη είναι μια πόλη με πολύ πλούσια και πολυπολιτισμική ιστορία. Ανάμεσα στις διαφορετικές κοινότητες που κατοίκησαν στην πόλη για αιώνες, η μεγαλύτερη ήταν η κοινότητα των Σεφαραδιτών Εβραίων. Δυστυχώς στη σύγχρονη Θεσσαλονίκη το πλούσιο εβραϊκό παρελθόν δεν είναι τόσο εμφανές. Στόχος αυτής της πτυχιακής εργασίας είναι να ψάξει για αποτυπώματα και μνήμες του Εβραϊκού παρελθόντος στη σημερινή Θεσσαλονίκη και προσπαθεί να ξεδιπλώσει τους λόγους γιατί η Θεσσαλονίκη δείχνει να έχει κρύψει το παρελθόν της. Όπως ανακαλύπτουμε, υπάρχουν λίγα αποτυπώματα και μνήμες που έχουν απομείνει και οι λόγοι της αποσιώπησης είναι, όπως αποκαλύπτεται, πολύπλευροι.
