tags: Romania, antisemitism, Elie Wiesel
The graffiti in a northwestern town in Romania — ugly, obscene and anti-Semitic — was clearly meant to shock.
It was scrawled late Friday evening on the outside wall of the childhood home of a man who had been imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp and spent the rest of his life preaching against hate: the Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel.
The building in Sighetu Marmatiei, Romania, is now a protected historical monument and museum. The graffiti read in part, “Nazi Jew lying in hell with Hitler” and “Public toilet, anti-Semite pedophile.”
