An Anne Frank memorial in Boise, Idaho, was vandalized with antisemitic images on Saturday, during Hanukkah, local authorities said.
The Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial in Boise is the only memorial to Frank, a famous victim of the Holocaust, in the United States. The tunnels near the memorial were reportedly defaced with at least a dozen instances of antisemitic and other hateful graffiti images, Boise police said .
The article goes on to state the following:
The vandalism reportedly included swastikas, a symbol used by the Nazi Party in Germany before and during World War II, as well as by modern-day neo-Nazi groups.
Boise Police Chief Ryan Lee said, “We recognize the significance of this being the last Saturday of Hanukkah and we are reaching out to Jewish leaders in our community to let them know we will not stand for such hateful and abhorrent behavior in our city.”
Lee explained that authorities covered the hateful messages as soon as they were discovered and an investigation into the graffiti is ongoing.
“We do not believe that there’s any reason to have any enhanced security concerns, particularly for the Jewish community,” he added.

Mayor Lauren McLean [D] said that the graffiti was a “literal and figurative stain on our community. This will not be tolerated.”
“Hate speech is reprehensible. It is not who (we) are as a city and is not part of our shared values,” McLean said in the statement. “I invite all good people of Boise to stand with me, as I stand with our Jewish neighbors, to rebuke this hate.”
