Cave Explorer Christos Nicola: ‘Secret of Priest’s Grotto’
Sponsored by: SCSU Judaic Studies Program
Southern Connecticut State University will host a talk by explorer Christos Nicola, who will recount the remarkable story of finding the cave in which a group of Ukrainian Jews spent more than 500 days hiding from Nazis during World War II. To date, Nicola has located 14 of the original 38 cave dwellers, and co-authored the book, “The Secret of Priest’s Grotto,” that led to the making of “No Place On Earth,” a documentary about their experiences. In 2013, Nicola received the prestigious Citation of Merit Award from the Explorer’s Club for his work in bringing the Priest’s Grotto story to light.
The event, sponsored by the Judaic Studies Program, will be held on the SCSU campus in Jennings Hall, room 127. It is free and open to the public. For more information:
