Memorial in Lviv Vandalized

KIEV — A Holocaust memorial in Lviv was vandalized last week.

Oleksandr Nazar, of the Sholem Aleichem Jewish Culture Center, said Friday that unknown assailants on Wednesday smeared red and blue paint over the memorial in central Lviv.

He said the vandals also wrote a statement on the memorial that "humiliates both Jews and Ukrainians."

Nazar said Friday that activists have cleaned off most of the paint and that Lviv police have launched an investigation.
