RIGA —Latvian President Valdis Zatlers on Monday slammed the vandalism of a monument to a man who saved dozens of Jews during World War II, just a week after an attack on a Jewish cemetery. In a statement, Zatlers said he “categorically condemned” the assault on the central Riga monument which honours the late Zanis Lipke and others who stopped Jews from falling into the clutches of the occupying Nazi Germans and local collaborators. “Zanis Lipke is a man who deserved people’s admiration, respect and love,” Zatlers said. “Last night’s vandalism completely contradicts that.” Riga police said that the monument had been found spattered with white paint in the early hours of Monday
