Swastika graffiti at former Nazi concentration camp
Mauthausen – Austrian police said Monday they have launched an investigation after
vandals drew and etched four swastikas onto walls inside two buildings at the
former Nazi concentration camp Mauthausen.
The culprits also scrawled “Hitler” in letters about one centimeter
(half an inch) high in felt-tip pen, police said in a statement. The graffiti
was noticed by visitors to the camp, now a museum and memorial.
“When this vandalism took
place is unclear. Most likely it was carried out by visitors,” police said.
