MACEDONIA TO MARK DEPORTATION OF JEWS



National.
Skopje _ Macedonia will host a series of events marking 65 years since the raids, attacks and deportations that led to its Jewish community being almost being wiped out.

Commemorations and other events will be held untill the 14th of March in several Macedonian cities, the Organisation of Jews in Macedonia told media.

7,200 trees will be planted near Skopje to match the number of Jewish people that perished during the World War Two fascist regime in Macedonia.

There will be a commemorative concert in the hall of the Macedonian Opera and Ballet, a book promotion and the opening of new offices of Macedonia’s Holocaust Fund in Skopje.

During the night between March 10 and 11, 1943 the police of the then fascist government of Bulgaria apprehended almost the entire Jewish population in Macedonia.

They were put in railway cattle wagons and transported to the notorious “Treblinka” death camp in Poland where most of them perished. Only 2% percent of Macedonia’s Jews escaped the slaughter either by going into hiding or fighting in the resistance.

The entire Jewish district located in central Skopje bore the full brunt of the events.

A Holocaust Memorial Centre is currently being built on the place where the district was once located.

The centre was originally financed by money the Jewish community received from the state as compensation.

However in late 2007, the government announced it will further invest in the completion of the centre by the end of the year.

THEY HAVE A NAME!!!!!!!!!!

FOR THOSE THAT SEEK A NAME FOR ' MACEDONIA '.

THE NAME OF THE AREA BEFORE WORLD WAR II WAS VARDARSKA.

THE NAME MACEDONIA WAS GIVEN TO THEM BY THEIR CRYPTO JEWISH LEADER JOSEF BROSTEIN (OR THE LEADER KNOWN AS TITO).

ATTACHED YOU WILL FIND THEIR MAP BEFORE 1940.


A FEW NOTES FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW.

1. ALEXANDER THE GREAT AND HIS TEACHER ARISTOTLE SPOKE HELLENIC. NOT ANY SLAVIC LANGUAGE.
2. THE MACEDONIAN CAPITAL WAS PELLA. NOT SKOPJE.
3. ALEXANDER'S SISTER WAS CALLED THESSALONIKI. NOT SOLUN LIKE THE SLAV(E)S CALL IT.
4. VOUKEFALAS WAS ALEXANDER'S HORSE. NOT A ZASTAVA.

SO, VARDARSKA IT IS AND STOP PLAYING WITH THE REAL MACEDONIANS.

WE'VE HAD ENOUGH WITH THIS JOKE.
