Two monuments of famous Vilnius Jewish historical figures were desecrated.
A monument to the Vilna Gaon was poured on some liquid of light color in Zhidu Street.
The second incident occurred in Messinu Street. Unknown persons desecrated the sculpture of a doctor of Jewish origin Zemah Shabad in the same way.
The mayor of Vilnius, Remigijus Šimasius wrote in Facebook that in the capital “there is no place for vandalism.” He noted that the attackers, trying to weaken and insult the Jewish community, only show their weakness.
