Anti-Semitism in Greece
Greek anti-Semitism has drawn international attention in the last two years for various reasons. Greek Jews have encountered extreme Holocaust-related anti-Semitic remarks by leading politicians, cartoons of an anti-Semitic violence rarely seen in Europe after the Holocaust, desecration of cemeteries and Holocaust monuments in various Greek cities, etc.
