The Holocaust in Greece
Holocaust would claim six million Jews, among them over 67,000 Greek
Jews, 87% of the Jewish population of Greece, statistically the
highest percentage of Jewish loss of any officially occupied country.
purpose of the following entries on this page of our website is to
formally list as many as possible (to the best of our knowledge) of
the names of those Greek-Jews who perished in the Holocaust.
Unfortunately, the information on Yad Vashem’s “ Central Database of
Shoah Victims' Names” is flawed, there are many errors and many
duplications, some contradictory. It is our hope to assure that the
names of Greek Jewish victims of the Holocaust are inscribed correctly
for eternity. The information on the lists that follow has been
gathered from a number of sources, The Book of Memory published in
Greece (in Greek) in the 1970’s, personal interviews with survivors
and Yad Vashem. There will, undoubtedly be errors.
of the Holocaust and the Occupation of Greece was so horrific. Jews
were attempting to escape deportation and fleeing from city to city.
Family members who realized after the liberation of Greece that their
relatives were lost forever often did not have accurate knowledge of
how and where they perished. There are still names missing from many
of the lists, and it is our hope that by making these lists public
now, we will still have the opportunity to correct some of the errors
and fill in some of the missing names.
It is our
intention to give a name to each and every one of the 67,000 Greek
Jews who were victims of the Holocaust, so that they will be
remembered for eternity. Your help is always appreciated.
