Rami Gershon visits his grandfather's grave today,

The sporting director, Gal Alberman and the captain, Neta Lavi, visited today at noon together with the management of Aris Thessaloniki and the heads of the Jewish community at the Holocaust memorial in Thessaloniki and laid a wreath in memory of the fallen.

Club CEO Itzik Ovadia: "As a leading club, the community for us is the most important thing.

Education for mutual respect and acceptance of the other are at the heart of our values.

We find it of utmost importance to remember and not forget the memory of the Holocaust in Israel and in the Diaspora, as there is great importance in commemorating and remembering the Holocaust.

The Maccabi Haifa Football Club welcomes the initiative to establish a Holocaust memorial museum in Thessaloniki, Greece, as well as the welcome initiative of the Aris Thessaloniki team.

We strengthen the hands of the activists and are proud to make our modest contribution to this important project."

The president of the Greek club, Mr. Theodoris Karifidis, told the official website: "Long before Maccabi Haifa decided to come and hold its training camp here in Thessaloniki, I was in contact with Maccabi to invite them to the game against Ares. The game symbolizes for me the good relations between Greece and the respected Jewish community.

"As we decided, all proceeds from the game will be donated to the construction of the Holocaust Museum in Thessaloniki so that we can all remember and not forget. I congratulate the president of Maccabi Haifa, Mr. Yaakov Shahar, who joined this gesture and Maccabi will play with special shirts dedicated to the Holocaust Museum and that the income from their sale will also go to the construction of the Holocaust Museum. Connecting peoples and cultures and I am very happy about the game and the new friendship."

It should be noted that earlier Rami Gershon visited the grave of his grandfather, who was one of the few survivors from the Thessaloniki community.
