Municipal workers in France’s Cherbourg-en-Cotentin neighborhood erased an antisemitic slogan from a wall on the Avenue du Paris, a main thoroughfare in the coastal town of Cherbourg. The hate speech had been discovered over the weekend.
The graffiti, captured in a Twitter picture and reported on by the French media, said, “I grab you by the kippa/you grab me with the Shoah.”
The local mayor, Benoît Arrivé, said the graffiti had been reported to the local prosecutor’s office and that police were working to track down the culprit.
“Antisemitism is not an opinion, it’s a crime,” Arrivé told the media.
