Plaque to Deportees Defaced

Swastikas and other Nazis slogans were daubed by unknown vandals on a monument at the site of the former Vught concentration camp, in the south of Holland, one day after it was unveiled last week.

The defacements, in white paint, were found the morning of Sept. 7, less than 24 hours after the monument was erected. They were immediately removed and a second gathering was held that afternoon to honor the 2,800 men, mostly resistance members, who in the autumn of 1944 were taken from there to Sachsenhausen, in Germany.
