News Brief


A Holocaust memorial in the western Ukrainian city of Lvov was vandalized.

Local Jewish activists said the plaque at the Kleparov train station that informs passers-by that the Nazis shipped 500,000 Jews through the station to the Belzetz death camps in Poland from 1941 to 1943 was defaced.

A group of Jewish tourists from France found the vandalized plaque with a hangman’s noose and a Star of David painted on it. It is still not clear if law enforcement agencies are investigating the case.
