A commemorative plaque was placed at Block 15 of the Haidari concentration camp where Jews and others were imprisoned and tortured during the Nazi occupation of Greece.
The plaque was placed next to an already existing inscription in Block 15 which mentions the fighters of the Greek Resistance who died there.
The initiative was undertaken with the cooperation of the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece, Deputy Defense Minister Alkiviadis Stefanis and the Greek Culture Ministry. The Jewish Museum of Greece provided the historical data on the Jews in Haidari.
The official unveiling of the plaque is scheduled to take place in September.
