The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece welcomes the landmark intergovernmental agreement among Greece, Cyprus and Israel for the East Med natural gas pipeline, an agreement of historic importance which was signed in Athens on January 2nd, 2020.

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE VANDALISM OF THE HOLOCAUST MONUMENT IN TRIKALA
Unfortunately, once more we express our sorrow, outrage and concern over the new vandal attack against a Jewish site in Trikala, the second within two days. Following the desecration of the Synagogue, the Holocaust Monument was vandalized, with part of the surrounding fence been severely damaged and the ornamenting Magen David been detached. It is to be noted that in February and March 2019 the Monument had been three times vandalized with antisemitic graffiti.

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece reacted swiftly and addressed letters to the Minister of Citizen Protection, the Mayor of Trikala and the Chief of the Police department in Trikala asking for the arrest of the perpetrators and their prosecution, the adoption of effective security measures for the protection of all Jewish sites -thus the Synagogue, the Holocaust Monument and the Jewish cemetery- so that such actions -that damage the image of the city both in Greece and abroad- are prevented from happening again in the future.

We hope that the city of Trikala, the Municipality, the Church and the civil society will safeguard the city’s history and heritage against the followers of intolerance and antisemitism.

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE ANTISEMITIC GRAFFITI AT THE SYNAGOGUE OF TRIKALA
During these solemn holy days that the light of love is spread all over the world, some still promote hatred against the Jews!

The hideous antisemitic graffiti with which the newly restored historic Synagogue of Trikala was desecrated, causes but deep sorrow and repugnance. It reminds us that the snake’s egg is still incubating within our society and that the struggle against antisemitism needs to be continuous and the vigilance relentless.

We condemn this vile act and call upon the competent authorities to take all necessary measures for the arrest and punishment of the perpetrators, as well as for the protection of the Jewish sites in Trikala, a city that has proved to show zero tolerance to bigotry and racism.

Tuesday, 15 May 2012 08:59
Minister of State & Government Spokesman Mr. Pantelis Kapsis made the following statement (May 14, 2012), in relation to the Holocaust denial statements made by the general secretary of “Golden Dawn” N. Mihaloliakos in a TV interview (“Protagonistes”, Mega channel, May 13, 2012):     
“I wish to condemn in the most determined way these opinions which constitute a distortion of history and a fierce insult to the memory of the millions of Holocaust victims.  
The Greek people do not forget that they mourned hundreds of thousands of dead owed to Nazism, amongst whom, tens of thousands of Greek Jews. We honor their memory and we fight against any attempt to forget, to falsify historic events and to revive intolerance”.
 
OPEN LETTER: WE ARE ALL GREEK JEWS Print E-mail

From the Website www.guardian.co.uk

The neo-Nazi party
Golden Dawn entered the Greek parliament this month. With its swastika-inspired emblem, Hitlerian salute, reference to Mein Kampf, antisemitic and racist ideology, Holocaust denial, violence against migrants, threats against journalists and personality cult, the party is the lineal heir of the German national-socialist party that led Europe and the world into chaos and bloodshed.
Unfortunately, Greece is not the only country threatened by this revival of Nazi ideology. In Latvia this year, the president of the republic has for the first time supported the annual former Waffen SS march, in spite of strong criticism. In Austria the FPÖ, an extreme right organisation that nurtures Third Reich nostalgia, is favourite in the polls for the next parliamentary elections. In Hungary, the Hungarian Guard Movement, descendant of The Arrow Cross party – the former militia responsible for the extermination of Jews and Gypsies – terrorises Jewish populations and holds direct responsibility for provoking deadly attacks against Roma people.

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece, which represents the Greek Jewish citizens of the country, considers the election of the followers of Fascism and Nazism in the Greek Parliament as a strong hit against Greek Democracy.
We are sure that our fellow-citizens, the democratic forces of the Greek Parliament, the mass media, the academic and the cultural society will join forces so as to continue the struggle against racism, bigotry and anti-Semitism.
We all have the duty to preserve our dignity and safeguard the principles of freedom, democracy and humanism.

ANNOUNCEMENT by the GENERAL SECRETARY of RELIGIONS - MINISTRY OF EDUCATION - MR. GEORGE KALANTZIS Print E-mail
Wednesday, 21 March 2012 11:49
The indescribable tragic event that took place in France, a country with long traditional democratic values, has to arise a great concern for all of us. Apart from our deep grief and our sincere condolences towards the relatives of the innocent victims, the Jewish community as well as the French people, it is our duty to think what we do as individuals in order to deter such hideous events. No one, nevertheless, either country or nation is unaffected from racism, anti-Semitism and similar absurdities.
