Greek parliament to fund museum space on murdered Greek Jews inside Auschwitz

The Greek parliament will fund the creation of a museum space inside the Auschwitz concentration camp for the Greek Jews who perished there, its President Nikos Voutsis announced on Thursday, speaking at a book presentation at the Thessaloniki Music Hall.

“The Parliament will assume the full cost of creating a museum in the Auschwitz [camp] area. The relevant procedures have already begun and within the next two years this space of memory will be created for those who died there,” he said at an event on a book by Giorgos Pilichos, titled “Auschwitz: Greeks-Number of condemned man”.

Voutsis said Greece should have done that a long time ago, adding it will be a space of remembrance for all those who suffered.
