Swastikas daubed on monument in Bulgaria’s Stara Zagora
Stara Zagora – Swastikas and offensive language have been found daubed on a monument in the Bulgarian town of Stara Zagora, the day after April 11, the international day of the liberation of Nazi concentration camps.
The monument, in the city’s Peti Oktombri Park, is to anti-fascist fighters killed between 1923 and 1944, and lists dozens of names from the Stara Zagora area.
The Organization of the Jews in Bulgaria “Shalom” said that it strongly condemned this ugly attack on the memory of millions of Holocaust victims and called for the perpetrators of the act of vandalism to be found and properly punished.
April 11 is the anniversary of the revolt by prisoners in what was one of the first and largest Nazi concentration camps, Buchenwald.
