|KIS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE DESECRETION OF THE HOLOCAUST MONUMENT IN ARTA|
|Thursday, 30 March 2017 11:20|
Only a few days after the remembrance events organized by the municipality of Arta for the deportation and extermination of the city's Jews in the Nazi concentration camps, the Holocaust Monument in Arta was vandalized. It is obvious that there are still people disturbed by their Jewish fellow citizens even if the latter are dead. They cannot tolerate even their memory!
We are confident that both the municipality of Arta and the vast majority of its citizens will not allow the desecration of memory by a few nostalgic obscurantists who vulgarly aim at staining the image of the city. We are also confident that soon the monument will stand again to fulfil its purpose: remind the visitors of the atrocity that led to the annihilation of the Jews of Arta simply because they were Jews and awaken the society that such an absolute evil can happen again unless we strongly preserve our democratic and humanitarian principles.
