Jewish groups in the Boston area are sounding the alarm about an antisemitic disturbance at the New England Holocaust Memorial, as police said they would open an investigation into the incident.
The incident was first reported to NGO StopAntisemitism who in turn tweeted the submitted video over the weekend; footage shows a group of young men appearing to kick the glass wall at the memorial in downtown Boston. The group of young men then noticed the person filming and approached him with antisemitic threats of violence, according to StopAntisemitism.
The memorial has been vandalized multiple times, including twice in the summer of 2017. Thankfully, nothing appeared to have been damaged at the memorial following this latest incident on Friday night.
Boston police issued an incident report Monday, according to a police spokesman.
