Vandals Desecrate San Francisco Synagogue; Smear Anti-jewish Slogans

Police today were investigating the desecration by anti-Semitic vandals of Congregation Ner Tamid, in which walls of the synagogue building were smeared with swastikas and anti-Jewish slogans. The incident, which took place while two groups were meeting in the building, was the second to have occurred to the synagogue.

The vandals, who carried out the desecration in the early evening while the building was well lighted, smeared the walls with such phrases as “We like Hitler and Eichmann,” and “Heil, Nazism will rise again.” That the daubings were not the work of small children was evident by the fact that they were found six feet above the ground.
