-- [ Page 2 ] --

After the declaration of war several Jewish families were driven out of Italy and deported to Greece probably due to their Greek nationality. About 15 families arrived in Corinth in two missions within a two-month period. The Diocese took over the task to accommodate them temporarily and to feed them. […] The Israeli Community of Athens regularly sent food distributed through the Diocese. […] The Israeli Community of Athens thanked the Church of Corinth for standing by the Jews of the town during the Occupation. Most of the Jews fled to other areas and villages assisted by the Diocese. […] The contribution of the Diocese of Florina Greek Jews lived in tranquility in Florina during the first two years of the German Occupation […] until the day when they were arrested unexpectedly to be deported to concentration camps and crematoria in Germany.

When during the Occupation Jews had to flee from the town of Chalkis to find refuge in the villages around the town, Metropolitan Gregorios, on his own initiative and despite the danger, hid and kept in the Bishopric the six Sefer Torah (i.e. the scrolls of the holiest book of Judaism) of the Synagogue. In cooperation with the lieutenant of the gendarmerie, Mr.

Economides, they provided Jews with the necessary certificates to get fake identity cards with Christian names. After the Occupation the Metropolitan returned the Torah to the Synagogue […].

During the German Occupation but also beyond that time, Metropolitan Gregorios assisted in many ways the Jewish community of Chalkis and demonstrated his feelings of brotherhood […].

The contribution of the Diocese of Rhodes Because of the complete destruction of the Archives of the Palace of the Bishopric due to the bombing there is no detailed information available. However we do know that during the German Occupation 3,000 Jews resided in Rhodes. The Church and the citizens demonstrated their solidarity to them and offered them protection and assistance during the time of their persecution.
