Greece: Holocaust Memorial vandalized in Athens, not the first time

Via European Jewish Press:
Unknown vandals stripped the inscription in Elie Wiesel's words at the Holocaust Memorial in Athens on Saturday.

The meaningful inscriptions in Greek and French calling on passer-by to remember the victims of the Holocaust disappeared in two of memorial tracks.

Minor Moisis, President of the Jewish community of Athens declared: "Elie Wiesel's appeal to the passer-by to stand, to remember, to honor the victims of the Holocaust was turned into an act of vandalism, disrespect, insult."

He said the city of Athens to which the monument belongs "hopefully will restore the pieces that have been removed."
