A vandal desecrated the Holocaust Memorial in Athens last Friday (27/06). The vandal quoted the antisemitic book “The Talmud unmasked”. Specifically, the passage reads: “The Talmud article Hilkhoth Akum (2,X) [sic] says: Baptized Jews are to be put to death”. A peculiar threat against the synagogue follows but its meaning is rather obscure. The text seems to have been signed by a well-known convicted murderer, Mattheos Monselas, who lives as homeless in the surrounding area. The desecration has not been reported until now in any greek media.
