A memorial in Russia’s Caucasus region to more than 300 Jewish soldiers who died in World War II was destroyed by vandals, according to the Union of Councils for Soviet Jews. The memorial in the city of Vladikavkaz was slated to be dedicated next month. Anti-Semitic slogans were reportedly painted on what remains of the monument.
