Kristallnacht type graffiti painted on Paris shop front

A Jewish bakery shop in Paris’s Marais quarter was painted with the word “Juden”.

The German word for Jews was painted on Jewish shops during Kristallnacht and the Nazi occupation of France.

It appears that the painting of the slogan was associated with a demonstration of anti-government Gilets Jaunes in the capital.
