Neonazi vandalism of Dutch Jewish monument

Swastikas on Hoogezand Dutch Jewish monument

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Jewish monument in Hoogezand vandalized with swastikas

The Jewish monument opposite the railway station Hoogezand-Sappemeer [in Groningen province] was covered with swastikas last night. From this place Jews were deported to [concentration camp] Westerbork during the war, from where they were deported to the extermination camps. …

Director of the Center for Information and Documentation on Israel Hanna Luden can not understand.

“The entire Jewish community in Hoogezand was wiped out, and then someone does something like this, you just do not understand.”

Besides the swastikas, the name Pegida was daubed on the monument. Pegida is a racist, mainly but not only, Islamophobic movement, founded in Germany by an Adolf Hitler copycat. Pegida has links to the neo-fascist AfD political party. Recently, an AfD politician advocated destroying Holocaust monuments.
