ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE CENTRAL BOARD OF JEWISH COMMUNITIES IN GREECE REGARDING HOLOCAUST DENIAL IN GREEK PARLIAMENT Print E-mail
Friday, 07 June 2013 13:29
On June 6, 2013, during the Plenary Assembly of the Greek Parliament the Golden Dawn MP and spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris stirred controversy in Parliament after suggesting he is a Holocaust denier.

Following the event the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece sent the following letter to the speaker of the Greek Parliament Mr. Evangellos Meimarakis, as well as to the Parliamentarian speakers of all democratic parties.
  
“Holocaust denial by a Member of the Greek Parliament offends the Greek Parliament itself, which in 2004 unanimously voted the enactment of the Remembrance Day of the Greek Jews, Martyrs and Heroes of the Holocaust, just as it has been adopted by all civilized nations that are not willing to forget. 
Holocaust denial by a Member of the Greek Parliament is an insult to the battles of the Greek people against Nazism, an insult to the memory of those who died defending dignity and humanity against the atrocities of the Nazi, an insult to the victims of industrialized gas chambers where 6 million Jews, our brothers, including 70,000 Greek Jews suffered a horrible death. It also constitutes an insult to the memory of those who fought to rescue their Greek Jewish compatriots, led by the Archbishop of Athens Damaskinos, during the period of German occupation.

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE NEED OF ANTI-RACISM LEGISLATION Print E-mail
Thursday, 30 May 2013 13:16
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece calls on all democratic political forces of the country to overcome their differences and vote for a law which would show zero tolerance to racist violence, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial.  
Today, more than any other time in our country’s postwar history, it is necessary to deal with extreme practices and ideologies.
Today, more than ever, it is necessary to enact legislation in order to shield society and democracy against phenomena of racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism.   
In addition, we consider as a very important issue the enhancement of Education through specific programs and initiatives that will provide young people especially with the knowledge and the strength of judgment, so as not to allow society to be drifted into those ideologies that wrote the darkest and most abominable pages of the European history. Ideologies that are responsible for the industrialized death of millions of innocent people, including 6 million Jews.

EUROPEAN JEWISH CONGRESS CALLS ON GREEK PRIME MINISTER SAMARAS TO SUPPORT ANTI-RACISM LAW Print E-mail
Friday, 31 May 2013 07:34
President of the European Jewish Congress (EJC) Dr. Moshe Kantor has called on Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras to support an anti-racism bill which would outlaw incitement against people because of their race, religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation, and impose jail sentences of up to six years on offenders, according to reports.
“It is imperative that Prime Minister Samaras support this law which would bolster existing legislation against hate and racism,” Kantor said. “With anti-Semitism, racism and xenophobia on the rise in Greece, the law enforcement authorities need tougher tools to curb this growing wave of hate rapidly spreading across the country.”
