Two Jewish cemeteries and a Holocaust memorial have been vandalised in separate incidents in Greece.

On the island of Rhodes, several headstones were smashed at the Jewish cemetery on 11 October. 

Meanwhile in the the northern city of Thessaloniki on 1o October, perpetrators wrote “death to Israel” on the entrance gate to a Jewish cemetery. 

The third incident occurred on the 16 October where the slogan “With Jews you lose” was painted on a monument for 50,000 of the city’s Jews murdered during the Holocaust.

It is clear that despite the steps that have been taken in recent years, there is still much to be done to combat racism and intolerance,” the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki said in a statement.

Earlier this month, antisemitic slogans and a Nazi symbol were daubed on the stone fence of the Jewish cemetery in Nikaia, a southwestern suburb of Athens. The graffiti included the phrase “Juden raus,” German for “Jews get out,” and the symbol of the elite SS Nazi force.

On 7 October the Athens Court of Appeals convicted dozens of the former members of Greece’s neo-Nazi Golden Party, including party leader Nikos Michaloliakos, of belonging to a criminal organisation. Michaloliakos and other party leaders were given multi-year jail sentences.
