Police hunt men who put Nazi poster next to UK’s oldest synagogue
London – Police are hunting two men who put up Nazi
propaganda next to Britain’s oldest synagogue, in the latest offence revealed
during National Hate Crime Awareness Week.
The suspects were captured on CCTV approaching a public
notice board outside the Bevis Marks Synagogue, a Grade I listed building
dating back to 1701.
City of London Police said they approached the board and
“affixed a poster that contained a quote relating to Nazi antisemitic
“Further to this, they also affixed a yellow-coloured Star
of David,” a spokesperson added, referring to the symbol used to identify Jews
during the Holocaust.
“The two men then
ran away from the scene of the crime in the direction of Bishopsgate.”
Investigators are urging anyone who recognises the men, who
remain at large following the incident on 16 August to come forward.
