The Map

The 3,059 students identified (of whom 2,647 were under the age of 18 in 1943) are depicted on a modern map of Thessaloniki. In order to identify a specific student, users can employ the SEARCH FILTERS and enter a NAME, SURNAME, FATHER’S NAME, FATHER’S OCCUPATION, MOTHER’S NAME.

In order to identify a category of students sharing characteristics, users may also select:
