The untold story of the life and perils of Thessaloniki’s Jewish community, presented in six poetic and stylistically innovative chapters. The Greek city, nicknamed “the mother of Israel,” was home to a large population of Sephardic Jews for centuries.

Then in 1943, Eichmann’s deputies carried out a program of ghettoization, deportation, and eventually the extermination of more than 90 percent of the city’s Jewish population.

The City and the City records this dramatic history through six intertwined and visually evocative chapters that deftly combine documentary, fiction, and essay.
