  • [01] Mitsotakis says Tsipras trying to divert attention from new measures with proposals on education

    New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is announcing changes in the educational system to divert people's attention from the new measures the government will bring to parliament after its agreement with Greece's lenders.

    "Just like he said once he will abolish the [unified property tax] ENFIA and tear up the memoranda now he's implying that he will abolish the existing university entrance exams. With which system will he replace them? In what university halls will students enter, with what books and what professors?" he said, adding the prime minister behaves "irresponsibly and frivolously".

    [02] Two Greek families to receive Yad Vashem medals for rescuing Jews during Holocaust

    Two families of Greeks have been selected to receive medals for their selfless rescue of Jews during the German occupation by the Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Centre in Israel, in a ceremony to be held on May 15.

    Ioannis and Katina Perraki and Dimitra Dimopoulou are to receive medals for rescuing Esther Malach Battinou and Moses Battinos, children of Solomon and Rebecca Battinos from Athens, during the WWII German occupation.

    The medals and the title "Righteous Among the Nations" will be presented by Israel's Ambassador in Athens Irit Ben-Abba and will be accepted by relatives of the two Greek families.

    More than 300 Greeks have received the title of "Righteous Among the Nations" up to this time, including the late Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Damaskinos, the former mayor of Zakynthos Loukas Karrer and national resistance fighter Lela Karagianni, among others.
