Romanian police began an investigation Saturday after anti-Semitic graffiti appeared on the house of late Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel in northwest Romania.
The probe was launched after comments in bright pink paint were scrawled overnight on Wiesel’s small house— a protected historical monument— in the town of Sighetu Marmatiei. One of the comments said Wiesel was “in hell with Hitler.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The Romanian group for Monitoring and Fighting Anti-Semitism called it an act of vandalism against the “memory of Elie Wiesel, the memory of the Holocaust victims and the souls of the Holocaust survivors.”
The Elie Wiesel National Institute for the Study of the Holocaust in Romania called for a thorough inquiry. It said Romania’s president and government have pledged to fight anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial in Romania, where some have denied or downplayed the country’s role in the Holocaust.
Utterly shameful! Antisemitic grafitti spray painted on the childhood home of Elie Wiesel, a holocaust survivor who passed away a couple years ago. The home is located in the Romanian town of Sighetu Marmatiei, and serves as a small museum. pic.twitter.com/Ma4GTGx5mg
