Holocaust memorial to be dedicated in Greece


A memorial to Greek victims of the Holocaust is set to be unveiled in Athens.

The memorial to be unveiled Monday night will make Athens the last European Union capital to erect a memorial to victims of the Nazis, the Guardian reported.

About 65,000 Jews from Greece died in Auschwitz between 1941 and 1944.

Greece’s small Jewish community has long campaigned for a Holocaust memorial, the Guardian reported. About 5,000 Jews live in Greece.

The memorial sits on land donated by the municipality of Athens.
