More Jewish Sites Vandalized in Ukraine

By: JTA

A Holocaust memorial and the grave of the brother of the late Lubavitcher rebbe were vandalized in Ukraine, amid a string of anti-Semitic attacks in the country.

The Holocaust Memorial in Sevastopol in the Crimean Peninsula was spray painted in red with a hammer and sickle and the letters USSR, and with what appeared to be other pro-Russian graffiti according to the Sevastopolskaya Gazeta.

The Sevastopol Jewish Welfare Center, Hesed Shahar, reported the vandalism to local police, according to Sevastopolskaya Gazeta.

The memorial was erected in Sevastopol in 2003 at the site where 4,200 Jews were murdered by the Nazis on July 12, 1942.

The monument has been vandalized by neo-Nazis in the past.

Also on Tuesday it was reported that, in Dnepropetrovsk, swastikas were sprayed on the tomb of Dov Ber Schneerson, brother of the late Lubavicher Rebbe, Rabbi Menahem Mendel Schneerson.

Chabad emissary Rabbi Moshe Weber, who works in Dnepropetrovsk, said that the graffiti looked recent, according to Chabad Online.

Since the revolution erupted in November, Ukraine, which has relatively low levels of anti-Semitic violence, has seen several serious attacks including a stabbing and the attempted torching of two synagogues, most recently last week in Nikolayev.

The Ukrainian government and Russian government officials, as well as their supporters in Ukraine, have exchanged allegations of anti-Semitism.

  1. Get out NOW! Sick!

  2. I hate this. History going backwards everywhere.

  3. Lize Bartsch says:

    I love this for one reason! Gd is busy and is still in ultimate control. He has an appointment with His people IN Israel. Return o Israel!!!

  4. They helped the Nazis in WW2 to kill Jews, many instances fully documented, such as the village near Lvov where they butchered my grandfather plus numerous other relatives. Many served in concentration camps as guards and were particularly brutal to Jews as well as in SS divisions. Nothing new for this scum, and I visited Kiev in 1990 when it was still under the Soviet Union and I can attest to the fact from speaking to Jews that lived there. The average Ukranians are low life Slavic garbage that love their vodka and hate Jews for no reason.

  5. This is awful, these nazis will burn in hell for this!

  6. As we know, Crimea is no more Ukrainian but Russian, and as we do read “The Holocaust Memorial in Sevastopol in the Crimean Peninsula was spray painted in red with a hammer and sickle and the letters USSR, and with what appeared to be other pro-Russian graffiti according to the Sevastopolskaya Gazeta.” It would be correct to put the right title: “The Holocaust Memorial in Sevastopol in the Crimean Peninsula was vandalized with pro-Russian graffiti.”

  7. Harvey, you can’t blame the Ukrainians for what Russian fascists do in Sevastopol. As we know, Crimea is no more Ukrainian but Russian, and as we do read “The Holocaust Memorial in Sevastopol in the Crimean Peninsula was spray painted in red with a hammer and sickle and the letters USSR, and with what appeared to be other pro-Russian graffiti according to the Sevastopolskaya Gazeta.” It would be correct to put the right title: “The Holocaust Memorial in Sevastopol in the Crimean Peninsula was vandalized with pro-Russian graffiti.”

  18. History repeats itself! :-(

  19. Ukrainians welcomed the Germans, and initiated pogroms against Jews, dragging a woman in childbirth to the main square and kicking her until the fetus came, then they kicked it like a football, she still bleeding was pushed on to a train, children were picked up by their feet and were swung against a wall until their head split open, these facts were documented in Bolechiv. Others tied Jewish women’s hair to horses’ tails and sent them galloping away. When found the victims no longer had faces.

  20. William, there were a few survivors from my grandfather’s village of Zborov near Lvov in the Ukraine. The reports seem to be a duplicate of whatt you just described, and I’m sure that this happened all over the country. I have pages, sent to me by a relative describing this. The reports stated that the Ukranians were worse than the Germans and seemed to relish the torture and killing. They actually nailed one poor victim to a horse cart and then tortured him to death. Sad but true and reading it made me ill. My dad and his two brothers left the country in the early twenties, they going to Palestine and my dad to the U.S. What a world.

    I wonder how many sleeper Vandals were imported to Israel by the Jewish Agency and the Israeli gov’t just waiting to get the signal….

    I’m going to say now what I have always suspected since I got out from the thrall that learned from CHaBa”D.
    I think that CHaBa”D is in cahoots with anti-Semitic interests in Europe to spread anti-Semitism by teaching vile interpretations of Torah that insult Gentiles, which somehow always manage to get into the hands of anti-Semites who hold them up as “examples of what Jews really think” and encouraging their followers to think that every “goy” in the world hates them.
    If Jews and Gentiles have so much “natural enmity” between them, how come CHaBa”D also says that assimilation is the other biggest problem in the Diaspora, together with anti-Semitism? How can there be a 70% assimilation rate in the US if “the goyim” hate us so much?
    I never believed the BS story about the “Alter Rebbe” being released from prison right after he wrote the Tanya, a piece of pseudo-mysticism rivalled only by “the Zohar”, which I believe was a work the Vatican commission Moses de Leon to write in order to baffle the Jews with BS, just as I believe “the Alter Rebbe” was commissioned by anti-Semites to write “the Tanya, by a “miracle”. “Miracle” is an historic code word for turncoat Jews cutting a deal with anti-Semites to undermine the Jews.
    Straight up, the last Rebbe didn’t even look Jewish. He had the kind of magnetic, hypnotic charisma that charlatans in Russia cultivated to bamboozle people. He was a Rasputin for the Jews. Not only did he teach a lot of hooey which sounded like Jewish mysticism, but was a load of bull; more importantly, his teaching sowed seeds of hatred between Jews and Gentiles.

    Does this look like a “Tzaddik” to you? Looks to me more like your garden variety Mesmerizer.

  23. We comment what happend in Russian Crimea or in pro-Russian Dnepropetrovsk today. The text has the wrong title and is persuading people to blame Ukraine for crimes done in Russian areas. That first. Second – blaming all Ukrainians today for what some pro-Nazi groups in the ex-Russian empire did in the past is as wrong as to blame the whole Jewish community for some mistakes or crimes of bankers or brokers, who sadly are native Jews (as people in the Western countries do – they do have a problem with the bank and write against the Jews, and it’s horrible to see it). The way you write here is hateful and not helpful, in fact if you speak so hateful against a whole nation and against millions of innocent people, living today in the state of Ukraine, who do support their Jewish neighbors (as all my Ukrainan friends do) and who have so good relationship to the state of Israel (the new Ukrainian PM, Mr Yatsenyuk, is a native Jew), this is just horrible. Seen from the outside, the discussions here about Ukraine look nothing more but xenophobic, leading by not so well educated people who don’t make the simplest differences. How can one writes that “Slavic people are garbage”?! How is this possible… It really hurts to read most of the comments, so aggressive and so absurd generalizing 46 million Ukrainians for crimes done by provocateurs in Russian Crimea or in pro-Russian states in East Ukraine. Where is the difference between your comments which blame “all Ukrainians” for everything bad happend in a conflict area dominated by Kremlin’s politics and the comments of common racists who blame “all Jews” for everything bad that happened in their lives… “Nobleness is an attribute only of the soul who can save its humanity in every situation”, wrote the great Martin Buber once. And I agree. Be blessed all…

  24. Ed Carrera says:

  28. Les Martin says:

  30. Les Martin says:

  31. Les Martin says:

    Yes but was it not neo nazis under that guise of being Pro Russian to inflame the situation..!! think about it…!

  32. Les Martin says:

    not for an anarcho communist surely..you write and speak like a Messianic jew..I think more like a messed up one.! shame.

  33. So sad, the rising lawlessness in the Ukraine. Maybe the Jewish community should get out of Ukraine. Hope Israel builds more communities in Isarel. I FEEL ISRAEL SHOULD ALSO BUILD COMMUNITIES IN THE JORDAN VALLEY. HOUSING, SCHOOLS, SHOPPING CENTERS , OFFICE AND INDUSTRIAL PARKS, ALL OF IT. PUT THE JEWISH NATIONAL FUND ON IT NOW. LETS MOVE FAST!!!

  44. Aron Bally says:

    Весела Кунева Как рещихте , че Яценюк е евреин ? Какво променя нещата , ако в правителството му има хора от десен сектор и бандеровци. И хайде да не търсим дали украинските антисемити са по добри от руските.

    Funny you should say that about the “Messianic” Jews. Evidently, you already see what “the Rebbe” was really on about, but you are too afraid to jettison your brainwash to admit what you know in your heart – the was the Jewish version of Christian nonsense. He was hired to be a Yeshu for the Jews.

    I know someone who is CHaBa”D. Her Daughter became a “Messianic” Jew. They didn’t talk for 25 years because every time they got together they got into an argument about whose Rebbe was the real Messiah. How sad is that?

    It’s disorienting to admit we’ve been bamboozled and it’s a hard process to sort out the morass of lies and distortions. I know, Les. It took me many long years to sort out the heavy, heavy brainwash to which Jews are subjected.
    The only difference between you and me is that I had the courage and honesty with mySelf and with HaShem and I love the Jews and the Gentiles and all of Creation enough to do so despite the pain of realizing that I’ve been lied to.

  46. -
    You know, Les, it was the Nazis who called people that didn’t agree with them crazy. Using cliches, as you do, is a sure sign that someone is deeply brainwashed. If you weren’t, you could formulate your own ideas and express them in original sentences.
    You’ve been both foolish and disrespectful and you show singular lack of control over your emotions. You may have the privilege of continuing an interchange with me when you become a mensch. Until such time, this interchange has come to an end.
