Nikos Stavrolakis was one of the founders and
director of the Jewish Museum in Athens Greece from 1978 until 1993. During that
time he was responsible for creating the basic collection of the museum
consisting of religious, ethnic and historical artifacts-the sole remnants
of a 2,400 year Jewish presence in Greece. He is the author of several
books of Judeo-Greek Interest including an important guide to "Jewish
Sites and Synagogues of Greece", a book on Judaeo-Greek cookery,
"Cookbook of the Jews of Greece" and several other works. He has
also followed a separate career as a painter and illustrator and his works
have been exhibited widely in the USA, UK, Europe and Israel.
