“Another site [in Thessaloniki] is the Jewish Martyrs’ Square, occupying a plot donated by the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki, which has a number of offices responsible for specific sectors (running the synagogues and school, welfare, medical care). The street sign identifying the square is vandalized so often, the Jewish Community’s technical office always keeps a stockpile of spares.”
