New Mosque (Thessaloniki)

Yeni Mosque

The New Mosque (Turkish: Yeni Camii; Greek: Γενί Τζαμί, Yeni Tzami) is a historical mosque in Thessaloniki, Greece. It was built by Italian architect Vitaliano Poselli in 1902 for the city's Donmeh community, Jewish converts to Islam. However, when the Donmeh left the city during the population exchange between Greece and Turkey, it was used to house the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki in 1925.[1] Today it serves as an exhibition center.
