A Holocaust memorial in the northern Greek city of Kastoria was defaced on Tuesday with black spray-paint.
The white marble slab that was desecrated carries an inscription that recalls the fate of the city’s Jews during the Holocaust.
It says: “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.”
According to Greek media reports, the mayor of Kastoria condemned Tuesday’s incident, and the memorial has since been cleaned up by local volunteers.
