6 Holocaust Memorial Statue in Corfu, Greece

A Jewish population has lived on the Island of Corfu since the mid-12th century. Over the centuries they experienced everything from acceptance to prosperity to persecution. The darkest period occurred in June, 1944, when the Germans ordered them to report. After a brief interment at the Old Fortress, about 1,800 Jews were sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp where most were killed in the gas chambers. Today, only about 50 Jewish people live in Corfu. This Holocaust Memorial Statue stands at the Plateia Solomou square in the Jewish Quarter called Evraiki. It is titled “Never Again in Any Nation.”
