Dear Charge' d' affaires Mrs. Despina Koukoulopoulou,

It has come to our attention that the unveiling of a Holocaust memorial in the Greek town of Kavala was stopped because it featured a Star of David.
The decision was taken by the Mayor of the town, Dimitra Tsanaka, with the backing of the majority of the Kavala City Council.

As you may know, 81 % of the Greek Jews were murdered by the Nazis, where of 1484 Jews from Kavala perished during the Second World War.

The Jews of Kavala were killed because they were Jewish. The Star of David is inextricably link to the identity and memory, of each and every Jew that perished during the Second World War.

The decision by Mayor Tsanaka and the Kavala City Council to demand the removal of the Star of David from the memorial is morally reprehensible and, frankly, beyond belief. We urge you to call on Kavala's city officials to reconsider and reverse their shameful and appalling decision.

Yours sincerely

B'nai B'rith Malmölogen
Kammrergatan 11, Malmö, Sweden
