Joining the international Jewish campaign of protest against the Polish bill that criminalizes references on the role of Poland with regard to the Holocaust, the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece addressed the following letter to the Polish President through the  Ambassador of Poland to Greece, Ms Anna Barbarzak:

On behalf of the Greek Jewry, we would like to express our deep concern and distress on Poland’s proposed new Holocaust law which would criminalize suggestions regarding Poland’s role in Nazi crimes.  

The Greek Jewry, in honor of the memory of the six million Jews exterminated by the Nazis and in the name of the 77.377 Greek Jews who perished in the Holocaust, strongly protests against this proposalwhich restricts the historic research and testimonies on the role of the Polish authorities during the darkest period of the world history. 

It is our wishful belief that the President of Poland would reconsider his decision to sign such a bill. 
We kindly ask you to inform the competent authorities in your county of our strong protest and we thank you for your intermediation. 
 
Sincerely Yours,
The President DAVID SALTIEL
The Secretary General MOISIS ELISAF
