With the Gestapo pounding on every door, no Jew in Athens is safe.At the start of Odyssey of chaos, Theo Kantos, a dress shop owner, has a desperate choice to make if he is to save his family. Does he trust the most despicable man he knows to hide them? Or does he place the lives of those he loves in the hands of a communist? And what does he do about his obsti-nate brother who always has to have the last word? Nearly 90% of Greece's Jews perished in the Holocaust, the highest percentage lost in any country. Odyssey of chaos was inspired by the true story of the author's Greek cousins who survived hidden in a cellar by a shepherd. Other cousins joined the partisan resistance. And others died in Auschwitz. SIX CONTEMPORARY SHORT STORIES follow the title novella. All are about dramatic events and choices that alter the course of lives and form who we are.
