Greece’s Jewish museum defaced

ATHENS, Greece (JTA) — Vandals painted red swastikas on the walls of the Jewish Museum of Greece in Athens.

The July 22 attack marked the first time that the museum has been the target of anti-Semitic expression, according to an Athens community news release.

Greece has been beset by a chain of anti-Semitic events this year, including twin arson attacks on the Synagogue of Hania, vandalism against Jewish cemeteries in Ioannina and Thessaloniki, and an attack against the Holocaust memorial in Rhodes.

Security cameras recorded the eight perpetrators during the museum attack.
