Antisemitic graffiti scrawled on monument in French cemetery
Champagne-au-Mont-d’Or, Lyon – Vandals scrawled anti-Jewish graffiti on a monument in a cemetery in the French village of Champagne-au-Mont-d’Or on Wednesday, local officials said.
Two swastikas were drawn upside down in red with the inscription, “Shoa blabla,” an AFP photographer said. Another swastika was accompanied by the phrase, “Passkon a pa le shoa,” a denial of the Holocaust.
Local newspaper Le Progres said that the monument was near a Catholic cemetery and that a Jewish part of the burial site was not vandalized.
