A Holocaust memorial in Berlin was vandalized.

German police said Wednesday that vandals had struck
overnight at the Platform 17 memorial at the Grunewald train station in the
capital, knocking over candles and burning an Israeli flag. A police investigation

were shipped to death camps from Grunewald station during World War II.
