On the occasion of the observance of Holocaust Memorial Day below find: 

(i) The presentation by Dr. Paul Isaac Hagouel at West Chester University on 

November 14, 2006 titled "History of the Jews of Thessaloniki and the Holocaust".

(ii) The documentary by Tasos Telloglou (with contribution by researcher
and local historian Alekos Raptis) titled "Παρέλαση¨ (Parade) dedicated to
the memory of Yanniote Jewish victims of the Holocaust (aired in 2008 in 
the "Νέοι Φάκελοι" (New Folders) series of the Greek TV station SKAI)[1].

The Holocaust Remembrance Day in Greece takes on special meaning 
this year in the face of escalating anti-Jewish sentiment spearheaded by 
the rising nationalist movement "Golden Dawn" (which has climbed to third
place in popularity according to current polls) in crisis-stricken Greece [2].

[2] The virulent anti-Semitic behavior embraced by this movement is indeed
palpable. It ranges from downright denial of the Holocaust by the 
movement's leader http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXy7f17GXtQ&NR=1
to constant references against the Jews perverting scriptural verses and
folk songs as well as perpetuating negative stereotypes in order to incite
hatred [see the last three paragraphs in the URL below].  

Regarding negative stereotypes, refer to the recent comment on a parliamentary
question concerning the proliferation of pawn shops in Greece, tabled by a Deputy of
the nationalist movement Golden Dawn at the Hellenic Parliament. The language used
speaks for itself: "... οι Εβραίοι οι οποίοι είναι αιωνίως οι αργυραμοιβοί επί της γης" 
("the Jews who are the world's perpetual moneychangers") [audible at 7:30' onward 
in the video clip below]. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8FipiiDSBU

PS. Evidently, the deputy's comment was not stricken from the record.
