 Resistencia – A swastika was spray-painted on a Holocaust memorial in the northeastern Argentine city of Resistencia.

The Monument to Humanity commemorates, among other victims, Irene Schwimmer de Korytnicki, the last survivor of the Holocaust who lived in the capital of the Chaco region. She died this year.

On Wednesday, the Resistencia Jewish community, the Hebraica of Resistencia Jewish Community Center and the local representative branch of the national Jewish umbrella group DAIA condemned the attack as “part of the antisemitic events that are taking place in Argentina, which threaten the coexistence and democratic values of society.” They called on authorities to investigate.
