On Sunday, January 29, 2023, the National Day of Remembrance of the Greek Jewish Martyrs and Heroes of the Holocaust was observed at Eleftherias Square in Thessaloniki. The event was attended by the President of the Hellenic Trade Council (HETCO), Mrs. Irini Karipidis, who laid a wreath in memory of the Greek Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

The President of HETCO expressed her solidarity with the Jewish community and paid her respects to the victims of the atrocities committed during the Holocaust. She also stressed the importance of remembering and honoring the memory of those who lost their lives during this tragic period in history.

We would like to remind everyone of the significance of keeping the memory alive. It is our duty to ensure that such horrific events are never repeated and that the world remains vigilant against all forms of hate and prejudice.
