Fiuggi - disgraceful antisemitic inscriptions appeared on a small placard giving information about the recent finding of a stone bearing a picture of a Menorah in the ancient neighborhood of the city of Fiuggi. The Fiuggi holocaust library is engaged in enhancing the assets of the Jewish culture legacy that were discovered in the Anticoli ghetto, thanks also to the valuable archive of the priest Celeste Ludovici, and has created information pages with the aim of helping those visiting the neighborhood. One of the pages that was displayed in the underpass of the synagogue on Battisti Street was damaged by the unknown vandals.
“An offensive act and a dangerous sign,” says Pino Pelloni, the Director of the holocaust library, “the importance of which should not be underestimated, since it goes against the educational values and transmits negative messages, especially to the younger ones”.
