SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Vandals painted swastikas on Berlin’s Holocaust memorial.

Eleven red and black swastikas were painted Saturday on seven of the 2,700 gray columns that make up the memorial. Federal investigators are investigating, according to Germany’s Deutsche Welle Web site.

The memorial, located near the Brandenburg Gate, has been vandalized several times since it opened in 2005.

The incident comes a week after a memorial to the gays and lesbians persecuted by the Nazis was vandalized.
