Neo-nazis Burn Down School

Download PDF for this date

Neo-Nazis burned down a public school this morning in the Paris suburb of Saint Marie where there are large Jewish and Arab communities. The modern building was seriously damaged in the fire but there were no casualties. Police reported that swastikas and anti-Semitic and anti-Arab inscriptions were daubed on adjacent walls. Some of the inscriptions read, “Death to the Jews and Arabs” and’ “All foreigners out of France.” Police investigators believe that a local neo-Nazi group carried out the arson attack.
