Antisemitic graffiti scrawled on Romanian synagogue

Antisemitic graffiti denying the Shoah was discovered scrawled on the outside of one of Romania’s largest synagogues in the western city of Cluj.

The Jewish community filed a police complaint.

Constructed in the Moorish style in the late 19th century, the synagogue was subsequently dedicated to the memory of more than 130,000 Jews deported from the northern region of Transylvania to Auschwitz in May 1944, of which some 17,000 came from Cluj and the immediate vicinity.
