Memorial To Greek Jews Deported By Nazis Covered With Black Spray Paint

    (JTA) — A memorial to the Jews of a Greek town who were sent to Auschwitz by the Nazis was vandalized.

    The Memorial to the Jewish Martyrs of Kastoria, in the northern region of West Macedonia, was covered with black spray-paint on Tuesday, the state-run news agency ANA-MPA reported.

    “In this place, on March 24 1944, the Nazis gathered the 1,000 Jews of Kastoria and transported them to death camps in Auschwitz. Only 35 survived,” the inscribed marble slab reads.

    Local volunteers reportedly helped to clean the memorial.
