President to attend silent march for Thessaloniki Holocaust victims

Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou will attend the annual silent memorial march for Holocaust victims in the northern port city of Thessaloniki on Sunday.

This year marks the 80th anniversary of the first train conveying Jewish inhabitants of Thessaloniki to Nazi execution camps, where an estimated 50,000 Thessaloniki Jews were slaughtered.

The march will begin at 11.30 a.m. on Sunday and terminate at the old railway station. It is being organised by the Thessaloniki Municipality, the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the University of Macedonia, and the International University of Greece.
