Anti-Semitic Graffiti Painted On Jewish Elementary School In Paris

(JTA) — A swastika and the phrase “dirty Jew” was painted on the entrance to a Jewish elementary school in Paris.

The graffiti appeared Monday at the Gustave Leven school in the French capital’s 16th district, the French anti-Semitism watchdog National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA, reported. The school is a part of the Alliance Israelite network.

Separately, unidentified individuals daubed numerous swastikas in the northwest London district of Dollis Hill, the Board of Deputies of British Jews reported. The group’s chief executive, Gillian Merron, called the acts “disgusting.”

Dollis Hill, “with its historic connection to Winston Churchill’s stand against fascism, will not be divided by the actions of idiots,” Merron said. “We hope the police catch the offenders and that they face the consequences of their actions.”

During World War II, Dollis Hill was the seat of the code-breaking computer used at Bletchley Park and contained a War Cabinet bunker for the Churchill government.
