Polish Police Probe ‘I Miss You, Jew’ Scrawl

Polish authorities are investigating a slogan reading “I Miss You, Jew” that was painted on a gallery near Warsaw’s Academy of Fine Arts earlier this week, with investigators unsure as of yet whether the new graffiti was meant as an anti-Semitic attack.

The 5-meter long inscription was painted on a gallery owned by Polish businessman Wojciech Fibak late Monday night, not long after the nearby art institute hosted the opening of an exhibition of photographs taken by Israeli artist Diti Ravner, who is also the wife of Israel’s envoy to Poland Zvi Ravner.

Two other similar inscriptions were painted on other art-related buildings in the city on the same night.

According to a report by Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza, police were called in to investigate the inscription by the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts.

Ravner’s exhibition was dedicated to photographs documenting what has been left of Jewish life in the Polish capital.
