PRESS RELEASE



KIS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE ANTISEMITIC GRAFFITI AT THE JEWISH CEMETERY OF ATHENS Print E-mail
Tuesday, 20 October 2020 12:09
The followers of the neo-Nazi organizations strike again and remind us of their hatred against the Jews. Neo-Nazis vandalized the external surrounding walls of the Jewish cemetery of Athens with the same slogans the Nazis used 80 years ago in order to deport millions of Jews from their homes and exterminate six million in the gas chambers, amongst whom 60.000 Greek Jews.

We welcome the prompt reaction of the Athens Mayor, Kostas Bakoyannis, who put in motion the Municipality’s competent authorities that immediately erased the hideous slogans.

Nazism has no place in our democracy mainly because it promotes its destruction along with the prevalence of the total violation of human rights. We express the certainty that the Greek State will take all necessary measures so that the perpetrators will be arrested and face justice. 

We will not be intimidated. Zero tolerance for Nazism.

Altogether, citizens regardless of religion, law enforcement and justice authorities have to be in alert and make sure that the Nazi crimes against humanity will never be committed again. Antisemitism lays in the very root of the “absolute evil” that Nazism expresses. It starts with the Jews but never stops at them. Antisemitism targets the fundamental human rights that Europe needs to safeguard through concrete measures both in the context of Justice and Education.

KIS ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE TWEET BY THE TURKISH DEPUTY FM COMPARING EVROS TO AUSCHWITZ Print E-mail
Monday, 09 March 2020 14:49

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece condemns and denounces the unacceptable and deplorable comparison between Auschwitz and the situation at the Greek-Turkish border in Evros region, made by the Turkish deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs on social media.

Six million Jews were persecuted, hunted down, deported, tortured and exterminated by the Nazis in the most industrialized and barbaric method in the gas chambers of Auschwitz and in other German concentration and extermination camps.

The policy of the Turkish government to exploit innocent people and create impressions by trivializing the Holocaust for political purposes is nothing but an obscene and despicable operation of misinformation and disorientation of the global public opinion.

We urge the Turkish deputy F.M. to retract his comment and apologize for this unsustainable comparison that insults the memory of all Holocaust victims.

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE ANTISEMITIC GRAFFITI AT THE SYNAGOGUE OF TRIKALA Print E-mail
Friday, 03 January 2020 13:34
During these solemn holy days that the light of love is spread all over the world, some still promote hatred against the Jews!

The hideous antisemitic graffiti with which the newly restored historic Synagogue of Trikala was desecrated, causes but deep sorrow and repugnance. It reminds us that the snake’s egg is still incubating within our society and that the struggle against antisemitism needs to be continuous and the vigilance relentless.

We condemn this vile act and call upon the competent authorities to take all necessary measures for the arrest and punishment of the perpetrators, as well as for the protection of the Jewish sites in Trikala, a city that has proved to show zero tolerance to bigotry and racism.

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE US CONGRESS EAST MED PARTNERSHIP ACT AND THE COOPERATION AMONG GREECE, CYPRUS AND ISRAEL Print E-mail
Friday, 20 December 2019 14:18
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece welcomes the US Congress decision to approve the East Med Partnership Act which reinforces even further the cooperation among Greece, Cyprus and Israel and at the same time consolidates stability in the region of the Southeastern Mediterranean. The East Med will not simply be a pipeline to transport natural gas that will boost the prosperity of the people in the region, it will be a bridge of peace between the Middle East and Europe.

In this spirit, this decision of the US Congress is a determining contribution to the forging of historic bonds of friendship amongst the peoples of Greece, Cyprus and Israel.

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE BURNING OF THE ISRAELI FLAG DURING A BASKETBALL GAME IN ATHENS Print E-mail
Friday, 20 December 2019 09:16
The burning of the Israeli flag, which occurred in Athens within the context of a basketball game between a Greek and an Israeli team, is a condemnable action.

The burning of any flag at the same time puts in violent dispute the right of any people to exist in its homeland.

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses the repugnance of the Greek Jewry for this hideous act along with its belief that such attitudes are condemned by the Greek people as a whole, whether in or out of the sports stadiums.
