MAYOR BOUTARIS' INTERVIEW ON THESSALONIKI’S JEWISH HERITAGE Print E-mail
Wednesday, 06 July 2016 08:34

Thessaloniki mayor Yiannis Boutaris visited the USA in June 2016. Mayor Boutaris was awarded by the American Friends of the Jewish Museum of Greece with the “Damaskinos Award” in a ceremony held in New York on June 1. Mayor Boutaris also addressed this year’s AJC Global Forum, held in Washington, as one of the 189 European mayors who have joined the 319 US mayors in AJC’s “Mayors United against Antisemitim” initiative. During his stay in the US, Yiannis Boutaris was interviewed by Ron Kampeas for the JTA (July 5, 201). We publish the interview here under:

His eyes widen a little. “Gini!” he says, he’s fine. He looks at his aide, Leonidas Makris, with a look that suggests, “I thought you told me this guy was Jewish?”
