Monument to Paris Holocaust victims vandalised

A monument to the child victims from the Vel D’Hiv round-up of 1942 from which Jews were sent to the Nazi death camps was vandalised in Paris.

The monument in the Children’s Memorial Garden in Paris’ 15th district was daubed in black felt tip with antisemitic statements and numbers.

These included the number 4,115, representing the number of children killed in the Nazi death camps emanating from the round-up as well as the word “extermination” and other phrases.

A police investigation has been launched.
