Vandals attacked a Jewish cemetery in the Polish town of Wysokie Mazowieckie over the weekend, spray-painting swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans on tombstones and defacing a memorial to local Jews who were murdered in the Holocaust. The incident took place approximately 145 kilometers northeast of Warsaw, and was the latest in a series of anti-Semitic episodes in the area. On one of the headstones that was defaced, she noted, the vandals had scrawled the words “Here is Poland – not Israel,” which is a popular slogan among Polish neo-Nazi groups.
