New Mural in Memory of Thessaloniki Holocaust Victims Vandalized

Jewish mural Thessaloniki defaced

A new mural honoring the memory of Holocaust victims from the Jewish community of Thessaloniki has been defaced. The mural, painted by street artist Same84 is 38 yards in length and more than 7 yards high. Tens of thousands of Thessaloniki Jews were exterminated by Hitler.

Unknown antisemitic vandals smeared the mural with black paint.

The Jewish community of Thessaloniki, most of whom arrived from Spain during the Inquisition, once numbered more than 50,000 souls. Now, only a few survive. Apparently, the vandal thinks that’s one too many Jews.
