Frankfurt (Oder) – At the memorial stone for the synagogue in Frankfurt (Oder), flower arrangements were torn out and candles were thrown over on Saturday night. A spokeswoman for the Brandenburg police told rbb that the memorial stone itself was not damaged. The police are investigating.
The spokesman for the alliance “No Place for Nazis in Frankfurt (Oder)”, Jan Augustyniak, condemned the attack and spoke of a desecration. The incident is part of a series of right-wing extremist acts of violence that have happened in the Oder city in recent months.
According to Augustyniak, neo-fascist violence is unfortunately apparently part of everyday life again in Frankfurt (Oder). The provocations by neo-Nazis are no longer acceptable. “It is necessary for Frankfurt’s civil society to take a stand against racism and antisemitism,” said the alliance’s spokesman.
