The Greek government has condemned an attack on the Jewish cemetery of Larissa, central Greece, on Christmas Eve.

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos condemned the Christmas Eve attack on the Jewish cemetery of Larissa as an “unacceptable and incomprehensible criminal act.”

The perpetrators painted a swastika on the cemetery gates and on the walls wrote “Juden,” the Nazi SS symbol and the words “six million more,” leaving the tag “Larissa skins.”

A joint statement from the Jewish Community of Larissa and the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece declared “Anti-Semitism is not only a threat to Jews; anti-Semitism is a threat to our democracy.” The groups called on Greek authorities to arrest and punish the perpetrators.
