Jean Joseph Pleyber (Ζαν Ζοζέφ Πλεϊμπέρ)(1864 - 1947)

Pleyber was a French mechanic who came in Thessaloniki with the French troops in 1916 and stayed in the city after the end of WWI. He was a member of the Commission responsible for drawing up the city's Reconstruction Plan.
He was also concerned with the problem of housing the Refugees after 1922.
He was burried in the Catholic Cemetery of Thessaloniki.
