GREEK FINANCE MINISTRY CO-SPONSORS THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM IN THESSALONIKI Print E-mail
Thursday, 09 August 2018 13:37
Another step towards the realization of the Holocaust Memorial Museum of Thessaloniki was taken following the decision of the Greek Minister of Finance Euclid Tsakalotos to co-sponsor the project. In a letter addressed to the Mayor of Thessaloniki Yannis Boutaris and the President of the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki and KIS David Saltiel, the Minister reaffirms the intention of the Greek Government to actively support the construction of the Holocaust Museum, and informs that the Ministry of Finance will contribute with a grant covering a sum up to ¼ of the construction budget.

It is worth to point out that the Holocaust Museum in Thessaloniki is also sponsored by the Federal Republic of Germany and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, while the land for the construction was donated by GAIA OSE, the public entity handling railways property. The foundation stone of the Museum was laid last January by Greek PM Tsipras and Israeli President Rivlin during the latter’s official visit to Greece on the occasion of Holocaust Remembrance Day.
