UNVEILING OF THE HOLOCAUST MONUMENT OF KAVALA Print E-mail
Friday, 05 June 2015 07:08

New date set for the ceremony JUNE 7TH , 2015

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece accepted the proposal of the Mayor of Kavala to go on with the unveiling ceremony of the Holocaust Monument which is set for Sunday the 7th of June 2015. This decision came as a result of the positive statements made by the Mayor of Kavala as well as the new decision of the City Council in favor of placing the Holocaust Monument in the center of the city, in addition to the position of the Government and of the democratic political parties, as well as of the thousands of citizens who through the mass and social media supported the placement of the Monument at the pre-selected site without any modifications.

The Holocaust Monument is not only a symbol of remembrance and a tribute to the 1.484 Jewish victims of Kavala, it is an emblem against intolerance, racism and anti-Semitism. It represents friendship, solidarity and love amongst people regardless of race, skin color or religion and it is our duty to reject and isolate all voices of hatred and fanaticism. 

The upcoming unveiling event will be addressed by the Regional Governor of Kavala, the Mayor, the Secretary General for Religious Affairs at the Ministry of Culture, Education and Religious Affairs, the President of the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece, the Ambassador of Israel, the President of the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki, the President of the Administrative Committee of the Jewish Community of Kavala and the donor of the monument.
