Monument commemorating the Holocaust desecrated


Nyíregyháza – a municipality employee noticed that a piece of the monument’s large marble panel was missing. Unknown persons probably shattered the monument base with a heavy object and using a lot of force, because it seems impossible for a single person to have the power to cause such damage. In the past the monument steps were already broken, but this time the damage is much more extensive and hard to repair.


The police immediately started organizing for the investigation and discovery of the culprits. A man living nearby said that many youngsters run wild there in the weekends, especially on Sunday morning, when they come out of recreation sites and then sit, lie and shout in the square.
