Trieste Synagogue vandalised on anniversary of Kristallnacht.
A police investigation is underway after an anti-Semitic message was sprayed across the front of the Synagogue in the north Italian city of Trieste.
The message, written in Italian, read: “Jews are the new racists and fascists”.
The anti-Semitic attack has been widely condemned by politicians including Massimiliano Fedriga, the governor of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region where Trieste is located.
Expressing his full solidarity with the Jewish community of Trieste, Fedriga slammed the graffiti as a "cowardly gesture that must be firmly condemned."
The vandalism occurred on the 84th anniversary of Kristallnacht or the Night of the Broken Glass, a pogrom against Jews carried out by the Nazis throughout Germany and Austria on the night of 9-10 November.
