Israeli Ambassador to Greece Arye Mekel (L), the president of the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki, David Saltiel (C), and Thessaloniki Mayor Yannis Boutaris (R) stand on 16 March, 2013 in the old railway station in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki, where the first train left for the Auschwitz concentration camp on March 15, 1943. Greece's second largest city commemorated the 70th anniversary of the first deportation of its Jews to Auschwitz. Around 1,000 people walked in a silent march to the old railway station where the first train left Greece's northern city for the notorious death camp on March 15, 1943. Flowers were thrown onto the rails after the march, and the Thessaloniki Jewish Community Choir gave a performance.
