Vandals Desecrate Jewish Cemetery in Poland; Paint "Holocaust Never Happened" on Its Wall

Several graves have been desecrated and walls have been painted with anti-Semitic graffiti at a Jewish cemetery in the city of Sochaczew in central Poland, the Jewish Press website reports today (February 29, 2016).

The graffiti included "Holocaust never happened" (accompanied by a Hitler smiling face) and "Islamic State was here."

On September 3, 1939 -- at the beginning of World War II -- German forces invaded Sochaczew and remained there until January 17, 1945, when the Russian Army captured the town.

Sochaczew lost more than 4,000 residents during World War II, all of them Jewish.
