Dunkirk – The commemorative plaque to the arrested and deported Dunkirk Jews was vandalized at the end of last week, Internet users reported on Twitter. The newspaper La Voix du Nord has also since reported the information.
The marble slab, which is in the Garden of Remembrance, in the center of Dunkirk, between the sub-prefecture and the station, was shattered.
Several photos posted on Twitter show it in pieces, at the foot of the stele where it was hung.
The plaque pays tribute to the city’s Jews who were victims of the Holocaust. “To those of Dunkirk and its environs arrested and deported as Jews,” read the plaque, followed by several names.
Ariel Goldmann, president of the United Jewish Social Fund, expressed his anger on Twitter. “It’s appalling, shameful and it’s every day! That’s more than enough!“, lamented the community leader.
