A French memorial to young victims of the Holocaust has been vandalized, the JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency) website reports today (August 9, 2017).
The memorial -- a plaque in Lyon bearing the names of 44 children and seven adults who were deported in 1944 from the children's home of Izieu -- was knocked off its base in a public garden and smashed.
Most of the children were killed in Auschwitz.
Jean Levy, head of a charity committed to preserving the memory of the deported children, said "We are horrified but we won't give up. We'll rebuild it."
