A book on the Holocaust in Greece was presented at the U.S. Capitol.

“Holocaust of the Greek Jewry: Monuments and Memories” details the stories of Greek Jews, 86 percent of whom died in Nazi concentration camps. The book also describes the activities of non-Jewish Greeks who risked their lives to save Jews.

The Greek Embassy in Washington organized Wednesday’s presentation, attended by legislators, diplomats, State Department officials, Jewish leaders and members of the Greek-American community. The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece published the book with the support of the country’s Education Ministry and the General Secretariat for Youth.
