Mapping the Childhood: The Jewish Children of Thessaloniki until 1943

The "Mapping the Childhood" digital application is the result of a research project (2021) aiming at compiling data on Jewish students in Thessaloniki from the archives of various types of schools (community schools, public and private schools, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki).

Information on approximately 3,500 students in total was compiled.

The data compiled were integrated into this application, which provides information on the age and time of enrolment of each student, the school and grades they attended, the names of their parents, their fathers’ occupation and their residential addresses. Students’ addresses are also depicted on a map of Thessaloniki both for each student and for categories of students, depending on the search filters selected by users. This allows for extrapolating conclusions through a combination of social and geographical characteristics.
