The Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) website reports today that a memorial to Greek victims of the Holocaust is set to be unveiled in Athens.
The memorial to be unveiled tonight (May 10, 2010) will make Athens the last European Union capital to erect a memorial to victims of the Nazis.
About 65,000 Jews from Greece died in Auschwitz between 1941 and 1944.
Greece's small Jewish community -- about 5,000 Jews now live in Greece -- has long campaigned for a Holocaust memorial.
The memorial sits on land donated by the municipality of Athens.
