ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE TERROR ATTACK IN BULGARIA Print E-mail
Thursday, 19 July 2012 12:11
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses its repudiation for the latest terror attack against innocent Israeli citizens, which took place yesterday in Bulgaria and resulted in seven dead and dozens of wounded.
This hideous act, following last week’s attempt in Cyprus, reminds the humanity that hatred and fundamentalism feed blind terror which once more struck innocent Israelis, this time tourists visiting a country of the European Union.
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece conveys the Greek Jewry’s condolences to the families of the tragic victims and to the people of Israel. It also wishes a speedy recovery to those injured.

GOVERNMENTAL CONDEMNATION OF HOLOCAUST DENIAL STATEMENTS Print E-mail
Tuesday, 15 May 2012 08:59
Minister of State & Government Spokesman Mr. Pantelis Kapsis made the following statement (May 14, 2012), in relation to the Holocaust denial statements made by the general secretary of “Golden Dawn” N. Mihaloliakos in a TV interview (“Protagonistes”, Mega channel, May 13, 2012):     
“I wish to condemn in the most determined way these opinions which constitute a distortion of history and a fierce insult to the memory of the millions of Holocaust victims.  
The Greek people do not forget that they mourned hundreds of thousands of dead owed to Nazism, amongst whom, tens of thousands of Greek Jews. We honor their memory and we fight against any attempt to forget, to falsify historic events and to revive intolerance”.
 
ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING INSULTING STATEMENTS BY NAZI DEVOTEES Print E-mail
Tuesday, 15 May 2012 09:39
The election of devotees of Nazism has dealt the Greek Democracy a serious blow. Their own leader, who looks with nostalgia at the darkest days in European history and hankers after the suffering that spread across the whole of Europe, including Greece, verified this in his own words in an interview he gave on Mega channel (in “Protagonistes”, with St. Theodorakis) claiming, among other things, that there were no ovens [crematoria] or gas chambers at Auschwitz.
This is an affront to historical fact, to the memory of six million of our fellow Jews (70,000 of them Greek Jews) who were massacred in the death camps of Auschwitz, Dachau and Treblinka, and in the other places of industrialised extermination set up by Adolf Hitler for the implementation of the ‘Final Solution’ to the Jewish problem. It is an affront to surviving witnesses of the atrocities. It is an affront to all those who resisted and fought to stop the raging Nazi fury. It is an affront to the history of Greece, to the struggles and sacrifices that the people of Greece made in defence of the principles of liberty, democracy and humanity.
We call upon the Government of the Hellenic Republic, the political leaders of the country, social organizations, educational bodies, and people who uphold spiritual and cultural values to voice their unequivocal condemnation and to isolate the forces that aim to revive the darkest ideas ever to surface in European history. 
Athens, May 14, 2012

OPEN LETTER: WE ARE ALL GREEK JEWS Print E-mail
Tuesday, 29 May 2012 07:42
From the Website www.guardian.co.uk

The neo-Nazi party
Golden Dawn entered the Greek parliament this month. With its swastika-inspired emblem, Hitlerian salute, reference to Mein Kampf, antisemitic and racist ideology, Holocaust denial, violence against migrants, threats against journalists and personality cult, the party is the lineal heir of the German national-socialist party that led Europe and the world into chaos and bloodshed.
Unfortunately, Greece is not the only country threatened by this revival of Nazi ideology. In Latvia this year, the president of the republic has for the first time supported the annual former Waffen SS march, in spite of strong criticism. In Austria the FPÖ, an extreme right organisation that nurtures Third Reich nostalgia, is favourite in the polls for the next parliamentary elections. In Hungary, the Hungarian Guard Movement, descendant of The Arrow Cross party – the former militia responsible for the extermination of Jews and Gypsies – terrorises Jewish populations and holds direct responsibility for provoking deadly attacks against Roma people.
