ANNOUNCEMENT on LAOS MPs JOINING the ND PARTY Print E-mail
Friday, 17 February 2012 14:59

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses the Greek Jewry’s concern and surprise for the fact that two MPs, M. Voridis and A. Georgiadis,  recently expelled from the LAOS party, have joined the party of “New Democracy” (ND). In the past these MPs have expressed or associated themselves with insulting anti-Jewish views.

We hope that the leadership of  “New Democracy”, which is a leading Greek party, will take all necessary measures so that such views remain at the margins of the Greek society, and will safeguard the equality of all citizens regardless of race or religion, as provided for by the Constitution.

The Greek Jewry also believes that the same policy against racism and anti-Semitism, as endorsed by all democratic Greek and European parties, will continue.

Monday, 20 June 2011 12:38
The Holocaust Memorial of Thessaloniki was vandalized on Friday 17 June 2011, with swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans. Perpetrators smudged the bronze plaque with the inscription dedicated to the 50.000 Jews of Thessaloniki who perished during the Holocaust, and wrote “LIES” on it.
This hideous act coincides with the decision of the City Council of Thessaloniki to bestow the City’s highest decoration over the 30 Holocaust survivors still living Thessaloniki in a ceremony to be held today, Monday 20 June.
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece and the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki issued press releases condemning this anti-Semitic attack and urging the authorities to take all necessary measures in order to apprehend the culprits.
