THE JEWS ON THE BALKANS
short review

The Jews that settled in the Balkans have brought the Bible, alphabets, names, languages, monotheism, Christianity, Islamic literature, ancient and modern sciences, European literature, art, and the basis of European ethics. They perished in the crematoria of the holocaust. Some believe they will come again.

Ancient Hebrews and Semites had influenced Homer’s world (according to Victor Berard). Alexander the Great spread their fame and a new language – Yevanic (Hebrew-Koine). Named Romaniotes at the time of the Roman Empire, they settled in Salonica, Crete, Corfu, Rhodes, Athens, Patras, Halkis, Yanina (as the main center), and along Via Ignatia in Bitola (Monastir), Skopje (Skupi), Shtip (Astibo), Ohrid and Strumica, places that had spread early Christianity. As well the oldest synagogue in the Balkans (1st-2nd century AD) was discovered in Stobi.
