Greek Jewish community expresses concern over anti-Semitism amid Israel-Hamas conflict


The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece (KIS) has expressed concern about recent manifestations of anti-Semitism amid the conflict between Israel and Hamas. 


In a statement released Monday, KIS condemned the vandalism of a Holocaust mural at the new railway station in the northern city of Thessaloniki and the damage to a Greek Jewish shop. 

 “The era of tolerance for anti-Semitism is definitively over and, neither in Greece nor in Europe, free voices can allow the return of pogroms against the Jews,” it said.
