Greek Holocaust memorial is vandalized for 2nd time

A Holocaust memorial was vandalized in the Greek city of Thessaloniki for the second time in two weeks.

In the most recent incident, the monument on the campus of Aristotle University was smeared in blue paint and had a cross painted on it.

Unveiled in 2014, the monument commemorates the city’s historic Jewish cemetery, on which the university is built, and is dedicated in memory of the Jewish students who were killed in Nazi death camps. (JTA)
