The anniversary events in honour of the Greek Jews who were wiped out by the Nazis during World War II came to a close at the Vassiliko Theatre in Thessaloniki, central Macedonia, on Monday night with a memorial event.
"The blood spilt of Christians and Greek Jews in our nation during the last world war forbids us to close our eyes in front of the war and terrorism. With the conviction that the steadfast commitment of Greece in the values of peace, justice and humanitarianism is the recognition of the sacrifice of our compatriots, united we dedicate our strength so that humanity never again witnesses another Holocaust," Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis said in a written message."
