Photo taken in:KavalaCountry name at time of photo:GreeceCountry name today:Greece
This is a monument in Kavala. The photo was taken in the 1950s.
I don't know if it is still there. When I was in the army I had to serve some of my time in the town of Kavala in Macedonia. At that time there were three or four Jews left in the town.
They decided they wanted to build something commemorating the community. So they assigned an architect, who was not Jewish, and me, to built it. It was the architect's idea.
We took a piece of marble and wrote the names of the Jewish people that had not returned on it, in circles. We tried to fit as many names as possible on it.
