WARSAW - Vandals have defaced a Jewish memorial in
eastern Poland by rearranging bushes forming the Star of David into a
Nazi swastika, police said on Monday, the latest in a string of
anti-Semitic incidents in the area.
"Unknown assailants, most likely overnight, vandalized a monument
commemorating a former Jewish cemetery," a police spokesman in the city
of Bialystok, Andrzej Baranowski, told TVN 24 news channel.
Television pictures showed the swastika, made from bushes, sitting in the middle of the original Star of David.
"The (Nazi) symbol has now been removed," Baranowski said.
