French memorial to Jewish children killed in WW2 desecrated in ‘shameful & cowardly’ act

France has been shocked by an act of vandalism at a memorial site, where a plaque bearing the names of victims of the Nazis during World War II, 44 children among them, was broken off and stolen in the city of Lyon.

The desecrated memorial was dedicated to the Jewish children of Izieu, in eastern France, as well as their seven adult supervisors, who were deported from a children’s home near Lyon to the Nazi camp in Auschwitz in 1944. Most of them died in gas chambers there.

    France is one giant shithole. All Jews should leave a.s.a.p. to Israel or Canada or the USA. When the Muslims take over, I will crack open a good Californian Cabernet and celebrate.

      Israel makes a good Cabernet from Bordeaux grapes transplanted there by Baron Rothschild in the 1880s.

        My wife’s cousin in Ariel complains that the French immigrants have driven up the prices of homes.

          That is because these French immigrants have had the foresight to move their assets ahead of themselves.

    Hmm, what group has a Holy book that orders them to hate the jews and kill them .

    Who could have done this.

    An entirely predictable cowardly and shameful desecration.
    Given the low cost and high quality of video security systems these days, it leaves the question of why no one thought it might be prudent to install same.
    Or perhaps the answer was it would not be prudent to install same and have to deal with the messy prosecution of the caught in the act perps.

      No camera was required, because up until fairly recently the anti-semiticism was limited to the French wanting the Jews gone from France. Now they have a much larger population whose god says that the Jews have to be killed before the whole world of muslims can ascend to heaven, and who believe that their Shari’a law overrules secular state law, and we have things like this happen.

    Using Bondi Australia as a model – there is no point in restoring the monument as it will attract those who will damage it again.
