KIS WELCOMES THE NEW EU STRATEGY FOR COMBATTING ANTISEMITISM Print E-mail
Wednesday, 06 October 2021 13:18

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece welcomes the groundbreaking action plan of the European Commission for combatting antisemitism and fostering Jewish life.

We congratulate Mr Margaritis Schinas, the Vice President of the European Commission for Promoting our European Way of Life, who played a key role in planning the new strategy to confront antisemitism in Europe.

The new strategy -as presented in the detailed and concise document released yesterday by the European Commission- is an innovative project that covers three basic stages -prevention, protection and education / research- the interaction of which we believe that will effectively combat the menace of antisemitism that revives in Europe. Within the context of his visit in our country, Mr. Schinas will visit the Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki and will be briefed by the President of the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece, Mr. David Saltiel, on the progress of the project of the Holocaust Museum of Greece in Thessaloniki.

In our country, where antisemitism continues to manifest despite the noteworthy educational programs implemented in recent years in Greece, the project of the EU for 2021 – 2030, through the multitude of the opportunities and means it provides, will contribute to the realization of coordinated actions targeting antisemitism.

The Greek as well as the world Jewry is looking forward to taking active part in the implementation of this project, hoping that altogether we will succeed in uprooting antisemitic hatred from the contemporary society. A society free of antisemitism means brotherhood, it means respect of diversity and respect of the fundamental human rights.
