No to Antisemitism in Tarnow @ Jewish cemetery Tarnow Poland
Jul 22 @ 10:00 – 11:30
No to Antisemitism in Tarnow @ Jewish cemetery Tarnow Poland | Tarnów | małopolskie | Poland

Just weeks after the Jewish cemetery in Tarnow was rededicated after a more than two-year restoration, vandals spray-painted antisemitic graffiti on the newly repaired wall next to the entrance gate.

It read: “Jews eat children Jadowniki eats Jews”. (Jadowniki is a nearby village.)

The Committee for the Protection of Jewish Heritage in Tarnow has organized a clean-up for Monday morning July 22, in order to paint over the slogans.

“We believe that the majority of Tarnów residents, like us,… oppose all forms of hooliganism, boorishness, anti-Semitism, or any discrimination and humiliation of other people, their origin, appearance, sex, age, etc.,” it said, announcing the initiative. “Let us show that in our city, there is no place for this type of acts of hooliganism.”

Volunteers are asked to bring paint brushes and rollers, if they have them. Otherwise they will be provided.
