Umea - A Jewish center in Sweden has been closed after Nazi threats, local media reports, adding that the building of the center was painted with the phrase “we know where you live” and has been vandalized with swastikas.
The incident took place in the city of Umea, northeastern Sweden, with some 120,000 residents. On Sunday, the local Jewish Association decided to close its premises and halt all activities “because of the vulnerability and strong threats,” spokesperson Carinne Sjoberg told SVT broadcaster.
Aside from the swastikas and menacing phrase on the building, the association also received emails with threats, she said.
