Thursday, 31 March 2022 08:49

78 years have passed since March 24, 1944, when about 1,000 Jews of Kastoria were arrested and imprisoned in order to be led to the Nazi death camps in Poland, erasing the traces of a thriving community that lived in harmony with Christians for a millennium.

The Memory of the Jews of Kastoria cannot and should not pass into oblivion.

With their thoughts on the tragic events of that grim day, the institutions of Kastoria and representatives of the Jewish Communities from all over Greece paid tribute to those individuals, in the context of a subtle ceremony held by the Municipality of Kastoria on 27.3.2022.

KIS CONDEMNS TERRORISM FOLLOWING NEW ATTACK IN HADERA IN ISRAEL Print E-mail
Tuesday, 29 March 2022 12:31

The latest terror attack of the organization of the “Islamic State” in Hadera, in Northern Israel, just a few days after the deadly attack in Beersheba, indicates the outburst of religious fanaticism and hatred against Jews on the very day of the historic meeting of the Foreign Ministers of Israel, Egypt, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Morocco. 

Once more the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece condemns Islamic extremism and terrorism targeting innocent civilians. Fanaticism -wherever it derives from- on the pretext of the intentionally distorted religious commands, fuels hatred, arms the hands of the murderers and perpetrates the blood cycle, while undermining perspectives of peace and prosperity in the region.

Officials, including President Katerina Sakellaropoulou, European Commission Vice-President Margaritis Schinas and Israeli Ambassador Yossi Amrani, participated in a march commemorating the victims of the Holocaust in Thessaloniki on Sunday, March 20, 2022.

 

“It is only if we transmit the historical knowledge to the next generation, if we preserve the memory, if we all have the empathy feel the pain and the anguish of the victims as it were our own, if we understand that the Holocaust is part of an international historical heritage, that can we arm ourselves against the march of evil,” said Sakellaropoulou. 

 

“It is unacceptable to call Nazis those who are defending the independence of their homeland,” said Schinas in a statement uploaded to social media, alluding to the Russian invasion of Ukraine that is being conducted on the pretense of “denazification.”
