Shropshire – Antisemitic graffiti invoking Holocaust denial discovered by a couple has now been removed from a wooden banister in Shropshire.
One section of graffiti read: “You’re going on a trip to a place called Auschwitz. Turns the ovens: high. Burn the Jew swine.”
To its right, the phrase “The Holocaust never happened” alongside a homophobic slur was scrawled.
However, it was only once that it was spotted by the couple, who discovered it while on a walk and then alerted Bridgnorth Town Council and Shropshire County Council, that action was taken.
The couple stated that in their 32 years of living in the area, it was the first time they had witnessed antisemitic graffiti.
Shortly thereafter, they were contacted by Bridgnorth Town Council to inform them that the graffiti had been removed.
