SF Holocaust Memorial Defaced with Antisemitic Graffiti for 2nd

Posted by challahbackgirl on December 31, 2008

Late Monday afternoon the SF Holocaust Memorial was defaced with Antisemitic graffiti for the second time in two months. There is a suspect involved in the case.

In November, the memorial was defaced with depictions of swastikas inside the Star of David, according to police. See an image in Oyster’s post on Oy-Bay “SF Holocaust Memorial Defaced with Antisemitic Graffiti, Again”.

Coverage from Bay City News, SFistSF Chron, and San Francisco Sentinel. There’s also a news report video following the November defacement.

An important message from a JCRC board member in the SF Chron coverage:

“The fact that there’s this level of intolerance and hatred in a city that’s supposed to be so tolerant is very alarming,” said Cheryl Feiner, president of the board of directors of the Jewish Community Relations Council’s Bay Area chapter. “We can’t ignore this as just a prank because that would condone this behavior as something to be tolerated.”
