KIS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE DESECRATION OF THE HOLOCAUST MONUMENT IN DRAMA Print E-mail
Tuesday, 05 January 2021 13:05
The Holocaust monument of Drama was vandalized on the night of the 28th to the 29th of December 2020, with graffiti made by fanatic vandals who sprayed religious symbols on the upper façade of the monument and broke a part of its marble base.

Similar graffiti was also sprayed at the nearby tobacco warehouse of Drama where, on March 3, 1943, the Bulgarian occupying forces arrested and imprisoned the Jews of the city before deporting them to the Nazi extermination camps.

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece (KIS), in its letter addressed to the Police Department of Drama, called for the arrest of the perpetrators, while in another letter addressed to the Municipality of Drama, KIS asked for the restoration of the damages caused to the Monument and the condemnation of the vandalism which offends the city's history and culture.

The Greek Jewry with repulsion and sorrow strongly condemns the continuation of anti-Semitic attacks that derive from any kind of fanaticism and encourage intolerance.

We wish the New Year to be a year of peace and prosperity, in which such phenomena will permanently and irrevocably stop.
