Holocaust Monument Defaced with Antisemitic Message in Moldova

A memorial for 6000 Jews killed by the Nazis near Kasauti, Moldova by the Nazis was defaced with graffiti on March 22, according to the Jewish Community of Moldova and Israeli Religious Services Ministry.

The Holocaust memorial in the Soroca Jewish Cemetery was graffied with the phrase “Free Palestine.”

“We will do everything possible to ensure that the facts are investigated and the perpetrators are punished,” the community said in a statement.

US ambassador to Moldova Kent Logsdon visited the memorial on Tuesday in an act of solidarity, the US embassy said.

“The Ambassador emphasized the significance of preserving and protecting cultural heritage and honoring the memory of Holocaust victims and called for a full investigation of these incidents,” said the US embassy in Moldova.
