Very interesting article. During the Ottoman empire Thessaloniki was a Macedonian and Jewish city. After the Balkan wars, Greece acquired the city when Macedonian was partitioned. The fact is that Greece couldn't care less about either group. Macedonians and Jews always got along very well, according to elderly Macedonians that have been interviewed in Canada. Bulgaria refused to sacrifice its Jewish population. Greece could have done so as well but I suspect it suited the Greek government to do nothing to stop the deportation.
