Salonika Holocaust Memorial Vandalized

Vandals daubed the memorial for the 50,000 Salonika Jews killed in the Holocaust with the words "That's a lie", a Star of David and a swastika.





The Holocaust Memorial of Thessaloniki, in northern Greece, was vandalized with swastika and anti-Semitic slogans.

Unidentified perpetrators daubed the bronze plaque in memory of the 50,000 Jews killed during the Holocaust with the words "That's a lie", a Star of David and a swastika.

This act coincides with the decision of the City Council of Thessaloniki to bestow on Monday the City’s highest decoration to 30 Holocaust survivors still living in Thessaloniki.


...and...

The city's memorial service for the about 30 survivors still living in Greece's second city was said to be the first in 65 years.
