    Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Christodoulos on Sunday attended a memorial service at an Athens cemetery for the Jewish victims of the Holocaust during WWII, along with representatives from the countrys political world.

    The Primate of the Greek Church, among others, addressed the service.

    ?We have our religion as our banner, in front of us. We should not be ashamed of saying that we are Orthodox Christians, or you saying you are Jews ? there are no greater roots than religion. If we cast out (religion) then we will be worthy of our fate, and we will not have the right to conduct such services.?

    The memorial service at the Athens Third Cemetery, which houses the Jewish Cemetery, was organised by the Jewish community of the Greek capital.
