VANDALISM OF THE MURAL DEDICATED TO THE DEPORTATION TO THE JEWS OF THESSALONIKI Print E-mail

Vandal antisemites roam freely and stain undisturbed any attempt to preserve Holocaust memory in Thessaloniki.

For the second time, the mural commemorating the deportation of the Jews of Thessaloniki to the German extermination camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau, which was created by the "Vardaris Neighborhood Group" and adorns the surrounding wall of the new railway station of Thessaloniki, with views from the pre-war and occupation periods of Thessaloniki, was vandalized.

This time the nostalgics of Nazism declared their intentions and anti-Jewish hatred with swastikas and fascist symbols.

This is the second anti-Semitic incident in a few days, after the desecration of the Monument dedicated to the old Jewish cemetery of Thessaloniki at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

We state once more: tolerating anti-Semitism means tolerating neo-Nazism and the abolition of the values ​​of a democratic society, of a lawful state. Because anti-Semitism begins with actions against Jews but it never stops to the Jews.

Statements of condemnation are not enough! It is unacceptable that those responsible for the vandalism of memory remain at large. Once again we call upon the Authorities to take all necessary measures in order to arrest the perpetrators and bring them to Justice.
