Lauder to Greece: Condemn Golden Dawn Activities


President Ron Lauder of the World Jewish Congress called on Greece, Sunday, to condemn the activities of the extreme right-wing Golden Dawn party.

Speaking at an event to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the deportation of the Jews of Thessaloniki to Auschwitz, he said that he hopes the Greek parliament will present a law which punishes those who deny the Holocaust. Golden Dawn founder Nikolaos Michaloliakos has, on occasion, denied the existence of gas chambers and crematoria at the Nazi death camps.
