Foreign Ministry’s announcement on Holocaust Remembrance Day
With the greatest respect, the Greek state today honors, as it does every year, on the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp, the memory of the millions of innocent victims of the Nazi Holocaust, the Foreign ministry on Wednesday said in an announcement.
“We feel particular abhorrence at the memory of the mass extermination of the Jewish population by the Hitler regime, which dealt an extremely painful blow to the community of Greek Jews. The Greek state is making every effort to keep the memory of these events alive and pass them on to younger generations. At the same time, it is taking initiatives to redress historical injustices perpetrated against the Greek Jewish community and to institutionally establish respect for the memory of the Holocaust,” according to the announcement.
“Greece supports and participates actively in all of the international initiatives for respect of Holocaust remembrance and to fight anti-Semitism and every other form of intolerance, so that humankind may NEVER AGAIN experience such atrocities,” it added.
