Vandals Covered Kurapaty Monuments With Anti-Semitic Inscriptions

Vandals have spoiled with paint the monument to the Jewish victims of the NKVD.

There’s been another act of vandalism in Kurapaty. Unknowns covered with paint the official memorial sign and the monument to the Jewish victims of the NKVD. The “Star of David”, an ancient Jewish symbol, was painted on both of the objects.

Young Front leader Dzianis Urbanovich has reported that on Facebook.

He said in a conversation with Radio Svaboda that two monuments had been damaged.


On March 20, activists who were picketing the Let's Go Get Some Eats restaurant near the national memorial, said that unknown people had overturned 14 crosses in Kurapaty. The Clinton Bench, a memorial sign from the US President, has been damaged twice since the beginning of the year.
