Abravanel writes about death threats sent by neo-nazis to Greek actor, Charis Romas, for co-writing and acting in the series “???????????? ?????????????”. I haven’t seen the series so Abravanel’s breakdown of what it is about is essential. He sums it up like this:
a simple, feel-good television series with drama like the deportations, youth love, messages against straightforward racism, while the viewers can identify themselves with the good greeks who are emblematic of the greek people who in their totality struggled heroically and saved the jews.
Yes, even making a rather innocent sounding TV drama with a single Jewish character is enough to send the neo-nazi’s into a tailspin. Mr Romas spoke about the threats in an interview:
he considers all this a great silliness although highly threatening” and he does not intend to change his script which represents also his ideas
