MESSAGE OF KIS PRESIDENT DAVID SALTIEL FOR THE HANDOVER OF THE IHRA PRESIDENCY TO GREECE Print E-mail
Monday, 05 April 2021 11:21

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece is very pleased to welcome the handover of the Presidency of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) to Greece.

Our country, member of IHRA since 2005, has a long term active role in initiatives for the preservation of the historic memory of the Shoah. The choice of the central theme “Teaching and Learning about the Holocaust: Education for a world with no more genocide” for Greece’s Presidency, demonstrates the importance attributed by Greece to Education and we are certain that the year inaugurated today will be filled with programs of core importance aiming at combating racism and anti-Semitism and establishing the respect of human rights in the conscience of the generations that will create the world of the future.

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece always was and will continue to be a succor in IHRA’s important task, developing and reinforcing the constructive collaboration with its Head and the Greek Delegation of IHRA.

This year’s Greek Presidency of IHRA and the 200th anniversary of the Independence of Greece will give a new dynamic impetus in creating significant activities for education and culture and will highlight the Jewish heritage and the historical course of our country, both in Greece and abraod.

With the completion of the German Presidency of IHRA, the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses its appreciation to the Ambassador of Germany Mr. Reichel for the important activities of his country internationally, as well as to the German Embassy in Greece for the events focusing on the Holocaust of the Greek Jews.

We wish Ambassador Christodoulos Lazaris every success in the task of the Greek Delegation of IHRA. We are certain that the Greek Presidency will promote both the perpetuation of the memory of the Holocaust, as well as the need to combat intolerance and anti-Semitism for the protection of human rights, regardless of color, race or religion.
