Greece’s interior minister compares Idomeni to Dachau

During a visit to the Idomeni border camp (Northern Greece), Greek Minister of the Interior Panagiotis Kouroumplis (Syriza) compared conditions at Idomeni to the Nazi concentration camp of Dachau blaming the EU of closing the borders.

Panagiotis Kouroumplis told reporters he “doesn’t hesitate to say” that the Idomeni camp is a modern version of the Dachau camp operated by the Nazis in Germany, ekathimerini.com reported.

He also blamed all other European countries indistinguishably of being reluctant “to assimilate one or one and a half million persecuted people.” (video in Greek)

Comparing European policies to Nazism is a common phenomenon in Greece: Back in June 2015, To Pontiki newspaper printed a cartoon implying that Greece is tantamount to a victim of the Holocaust.
