Holocaust Memorial in Thessaloniki vandalized

For one more time, vandals desecrated the Holocaust Memorial at Eleftherias square in Thessaloniki, Northern Greece. They threw paint and destroyed an Israeli flag on Wednesday evening. The vandalism is allegedly attributed to people who left a protest against the Macedonia deal between Greece and FYROM and was taking place nearby.
