The second episode of Symbiosis Radio for Get the Trolls Out! was broadcast on FM100.6 in June 2016. July 11, 1942 is a darkest day in the history of the city. The Germans ordering all Jewish men between 18 and 45 years in the hot sun to come to Liberty Square to record them in order to displace them later in concentration camps. From 46,000 Jews that were deported in 19 transports, 37,000 were children and old people, unable to work. From the concentration camps only about 1,900 of them returned. The extermination of the Jews is "A History of Thessaloniki". The history is told by Rena Molho, Athanasia Melekou, Evangelos Hekimoglou, Lazaros Sefiha and Iakov Antzel.
What is the story of Jews of Thessaloniki and what places today tell us of what happened during the Holocaust? The history of the city – intended to become “Greek” and “Christian” after its annexation to Greece – has heavily contributed to the extent of extermination of Thessaloniki Jews during WW2 and the consequences are still visible in today’s society. Symbiosis radio interviewed Giannis Glarnetatzis, historian and guide of the Holocaust remembrance walk by the Thessaloniki Antiracist Initiative.
