The Auschwitz Memorial’s official Twitter account reported that an exterior wall of the Auschwitz Jewish cemetery was vandalised.
The tweets from the Auschwitz memorial said, “The exterior wall of the Oświęcim Jewish cemetery – a remnant and memorial of the destroyed community – has been vandalised with Nazi symbols. Seeing them just 3 km from the Memorial, at the town that suffered so much during the German occupation, is painful.
A second tweet continued: “This cemetery is well taken care of by the Auschwitz Jewish Center & local community. The wall was cleaned immediately, but together we need to keep fighting against all forms of hatred. The Polish law prosecutes such acts. We hope the Police will identify people responsible.”
