AHEPA, B'nai B'rith Laud New Holocaust Museum in Thessaloniki, Greece


Order of AHEPA and B'nai B'rith International commend the recent groundbreaking for a Holocaust Museum and Educational Center in Thessaloniki, Greece.

The museum and educational center will commemorate the 55,000 Greek Jews who were sent to Nazi concentration camps such as Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland. The site of the museum is in the area of the old railway station from where the death trains departed.

AHEPA and B'nai B'rith also laud the persistence and collaborative efforts of Mayor Yiannis Boutaris and the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki (JCT), led by David Saltiel, which has brought the project to this important point.

Our organizations look forward to visiting the site on a future joint mission. It is expected that the museum will be inaugurated at the end of 2019.
