Pierre Sintès explores the study undertaken in Rhodes in 2006, considering the conditions to which memory can be expressed by the descendants of the Jewish population of Rhodes who come to the island in search of the places where their ancestors lived and how this challenges the version typically presented to tourists by tourist guides and most of the museums they have access to. Sintès shows the likeness in experience of memory and place between the Jewish community of Rhodes and Albanian immigrants and presents another case of a minority group, that despite having disappeared from the Greek context, particularly locally, can still successfully and publicly express its vigorous spatial and temporal memory.

Keywords:   Jewish community of Rhodes, Greece, Special and temporal memory, Minority group, Memory, Identity, Judeo-Greek identity, Judeo-Greek history
