In a find that local
Jewish groups have described as highly significant, Greek police said
last week that hundreds of marble headstones and other fragments from
Jewish graves destroyed during the Nazi
occupation in World War II
have been recovered.
The 668 fragments were found buried in a plot of land in Thessaloniki, Greece's
second largest city, following a 70-year search for the remains of
graves smashed when the city's main Jewish cemetery was destroyed.
