Vandals in Ghent damage Holocaust memorial
Ghent – Vandals have damaged a Holocaust memorial in the Belgian city of Ghent, located some 50 km west of Brussels. It happened on the eve of the Kristallnacht (‘’Night of Broken Glass’’) commemoration.
The so-called Michaël Lustig monument, in the shape of a dreidel, is located at the confluence of a major canal. The monument, consisting of a marble floor with a copper toll, was installed in 1998. The artwork bears the names of the Jews in Ghent who were deported to Nazi camps during World War II.
