ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE DOCUMENTARY ON GOLDEN DAWN Print E-mail
Thursday, 07 March 2013 14:00
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece issued the following Press Release, with regard to a documentary broadcasted by the British TV Channel 4 on the practices of Golden Dawn:

The Greek Jews feel outrage and repudiation for the hideous and repulsive desire expressed by a Nazism seeker, member of the Golden Dawn, to revive the industrialized methods of extermination of people.
Six million Jews, along with millions of other “different” people, were murdered in the crematoria in Auschwitz-Birkenau, Majdanek, Treblinka and in other Nazi extermination camps during the implementation of the “Final Solution” of the “Jewish problem” by the Nazis.
One more time, the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece calls upon the Government and the democratic parties to reinforce legislation and fortify Democracy against all those who threaten it with racist, anti-Semitic, and neonazi behaviors and ideology.

The report states: “The recognition of the Holocaust Remembrance Day aims at preserving the memory of our Jewish compatriots victims of the Holocaust. It also serves as a continuous reminder of what may happen if bigotry, hatred and indifference become the prevailing characteristics of a society. 
Through the contact with the Holocaust history our intention is to stimulate our thought and activity with regard to major moral issues related to the Holocaust, as well as to our responsibility as citizens of a democratic society”.
