Honouring the memory of Greek Jews murdered by the Nazis

history > memory
Since yesterday was a day of rememberence of the holocaust, let me link (as a small tribute) to two sites about the holocaust in Greece:
The first about the deportation of the Salonica Jews, is titled "The trains of death" and it describes the evacuation of the city from its Jewish population.
The second is an online exhibition of the US holocaust memorial museum, about the Holocaust in Greece. Here's the site in pdf format.
A thorough review of the fate of the Greek Jewish population under the axis occupation can be found in Mark Mazower's book: "Inside Hitler's Greece" along with a detailed account of how EAM saved Athens' 8000 Jewish residents.
