Monument in commemoration of the old Jewish cemetery of Thessaloniki to be inaugurated at the Aristotle University

A monument in commemoration of the old Jewish cemetery of Thessaloniki is to be inaugurated at the Aristotle University on November 9th (see invitation below). The Jewish cemetery of Thessaloniki was once the largest in the entire world with 350.000 graves and was destroyed in 1942 by the Nazis and their collaborators. Many Greeks ignore the fact that Aristotle University stands on its ruins.
