Anne Frank, Holocaust murals defaced in Milan with ‘Free Gaza’

Two murals designed to combat antisemitism have been defaced in Milan in the space of 24 hours, the UK’s Daily Mail reports.

In one mural that depicts  Anne Frank holding an Israeli flag,  the teenage Holocaust diarist is painted over with the words “Free Gaza.”

In a second mural, known as the “Warsaw Ghetto boy,” which shows a young child surrendering to the Nazis, the boy is completely painted over.

The report quotes Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini condemning the vandalism, saying Italians “must stand together against hatred.”
