Sighet – The childhood home of late Nobel Prize-winning author and Holocaust survivor Elie Weisel was vandalized with antisemitic graffiti overnight Friday, police in the Romanian town of Sighet told local media.

A police spokesperson on Saturday said an investigation into the vandalism had been opened immediately, and police were combing security camera footage from a nearby building in an effort to identify the perpetrators.

Some of the graffiti included slurs against Wiesel, calling him a “Jewish Nazi” who was “in hell with Hitler,” and an “antisemitic pedophile.” There was also a reference to Germany’s Angela Merkel, Russia’s Vladimir Putin, and US President Donald Trump.
