Israel President Attends Holocaust Museum Ceremony In Greece

Location: THESSALONIKI, Greece
January 30, 2018

epa06485225 Israeli President Reuven Rivlin (C) and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras (3-R) hold a spade as they help to lay the foundation stone for the building of a Holocaust Museum, in Thessaloniki, Greece, 30 January 2018. Others are not identified. The Museum will be built in an area with great symbolism, close to the old railway station used during the Nazi occupation to ship out the so-called ‘death trains’ carrying Greek Jews to the concentration camps. More than 55,000 Jews of Thessaloniki, members of a thriving community in many sectors, were exterminated in the Nazi camps. The building of the Museum will be funded by the German Foreign Ministry and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation with 10 million euros each.  EPA-EFE/NIKOS ARVANITIDIS
