Memorial sign in the place of the Pinsk ghetto

In the past few days in Pinsk a memorial sign in the place of a ghetto of the World War II, was desecrated, and a swastika was pained on the building of the Jewish educational center.

The Jewish community believe that these incidents are not the accident and everything was done purposefully. In their opinion, here one can talk not only about vandalism as a hooligan act, but also as a manifestation of neo-Nazism, presenting a threat to the societal values.

The head of the Pinsk City Executive Committee Aliaksandr Hordzich asked to find and bring to justice those involved in these incidents. However, the law enforcement agencies continue their search and cannot give a clear assessment of what has happened.
