Hundreds of Jewish Tombstones Found in Greece

JewishPress Logo

Greek police on Thursday said they had discovered hundreds of Jewish marble headstones destroyed during the Nazi occupation of Greece during World War II.

Most of the 668 fragments were dated from the mid-1800s to just prior to the war in Thessaloniki, Greece’s second largest city.

Approximately 60,000 Greek Jews were murdered during the Holocaust – almost all the Jews in the country.
