DPA - A Holocaust monument in the central Greek town of Larisa was desecrated with rightwing extremist symbols and slurs, the Central Council of the Jewish Community in Greece reported Wednesday.

The Jewish Community condemned the desecration, photos of which they published on their home page.

Greek Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos in response stated that the authorities would do all they could to bring those responsible to account.

Around 60,000 Greek Jews were deported and murdered during the occupation of Greece by Nazi Germany in World War II.
