Greek Jews’ Situation Unchanged

Download PDF for this date

The position of Greek Jews has not changed in any way as a result of the latest change of government, the JTA was told by Joseph Lovinger, chairman of the Jewish community in Greece who attended the meeting of the European Executive of the World Jewish Congress, together with Lazar Eliezer one of the leaders of the community.

Lovinger said: “The new government of Greece did not bring about any changes in the position of the Jewish community. Greece never had any kind of anti-Jewish program. Greek Jews have always lived in peace, and on a basis of complete equality among the Greeks. This was the case under all governments, and it remains the case under the present one as a matter of fact.”

Regarding the Middle East, Lovinger said: “The new government did not change the foreign policy of the country. This means, of course, that the Middle East policy of Greece also remains unchanged.”
