A monument for Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, was smeared with anti-Semitic slogans, police here reported today. The vandals, believed to be right-wing extremists, daubed the memorial with the slogans “Saujud” (Jewish pig) and “Jew, die.” They also defaced a Star of David on the monument by painting over it. The memorial was erected last March at the spot in the Vienna woods “where Freud discovered the mystery of dreams July 24, 1895,” according to an inscription on the monument.
