Gdańsk synagogue vandalized with antisemitic tags

On the façade of the synagogue in Gdańsk, someone painted a swastika and three letters K, probably referring to the racist Ku Klux Klan.

The inscriptions have already been painted over, and the police are investigating the case.

“We secured traces and recordings from surveillance cameras” – says junior asp. Marek Kobiałko from the Municipal Police Headquarters in Gdańsk.

The inscriptions have already been painted over by representatives of the Jewish Religious Community in Gdańsk, and the matter has been reported to the police.

The police received the call at 10:30. An investigative team with a forensics technician was at the scene.

The case is treated as a priority. “We want to apprehend the perpetrators as soon as possible,” he said.
