In October 2013, a memorial for the Cretan Jews who perished during the Shoa was unveiled in Hania under the aegis of the Central Board of the Jewish Communities of Greece and the Municipality of Hania. The memorial is located in the Koum Kapi neighbourhood just outside the eastern city walls; the former Jewish Quarter is located at the opposite end of the old town.
