Swastika Painted on New Zealand Jewish Center

JewishPress Logo

A swastika was painted on the Wellington Jewish center, which houses the city’s only Orthodox congregation and is the focus of Jewish life in New Zealand’s harbor city capital,”  according to its website.

Jewish officials said the swastika was painted on the back wall, and they reported the incident to police.

“It was fairly minor and nowhere near as serious as the attack on the Symonds Street cemetery in Auckland last year,” a Jewish official said, referring to the defacing of more than a dozen historic Jewish graves in Auckland. “That tagging had other features [like the ’88’ tag signifying ‘Heil Hitler’] which clearly identified the perpetrators as neo-Nazi, but this tagging doesn’t appear so sinister.”

  1. This might look like a minor act of vandalism but any form of Anti Semitism is reason for concern. New Zealand has a proud history of equality for every race and religion, it is a freedom we must guard because it affects each and everyone of us.
