Monument in Sofia to victims of communism daubed with antisemitic graffiti
Sofia – A monument in Bulgaria’s capital Sofia to victims of the country’s communist era has been daubed with swastikas and an antisemitic slogan.
Photos of the graffiti were posted on the Facebook page of the nearby chapel dedicated to Bulgarians who were victims of the communist regime.
On a wall listing the names of the victims, the words “Jewish murderers” (“Чифути убийци”) were scrawled, using a vulgar Bulgarian term for Jews.
Part of antisemitism propagates a conspiracy that Jews were behind the Bolshevik revolution and were architects of other communist regimes.
