The entrance of the Jewish Cemetery in Nikaia (an area outside Athens) was vandalized with threatening graffiti featuring nazi symbols (see photos below), reported today the Jewish Community of Athens. This cemetery is adjacent to the 3rd Cemetery of Athens. Its use started just after the War when the Municipality of Athens gave this area to the Jewish Community.
Update: Greek nazi & antisemitic organization “C18 Hellas” posted pictures of the vandalism online, claiming responsibility for the action. They seem to cooperate with the nazi organization “Unaligned Meander Nationalists” (Greek abbreviation: AME). AME, which declares to be a hardcore radical and nationalistic organization and separates itself from “moderate nationalists” of Golden Dawn, has signed the desecration of the Holocaust Monument in the island of Rhodes in October 2012, the desecration of the Holocaust Monument in Athens in October 2014 and the vandalism of the Jewish Cemetery of Larissa in January 2015.

Nikaia, Athens – The main Jewish cemetery in Athens was vandalized with swastikas and anti-Jewish graffiti.
The vandals sprayed “Fuck Jews” and a Nazi swastika on one of the cemetery walls and a swastika and the German word “Raus,” meaning get out, along with the tag C-18 on the cemetery gate pillar.
C-18 refers to Combat 18 Hellas, a small neo-Nazi group operating in Greece. The group posted pictures on their website and claimed responsibility for what it called the “beautiful artistic intervention at the Jewish cemetery.”
