Boston Holocaust Memorial Vandalized In Monday Night Attack




Boston police have arrested a suspect after witnesses claimed to see a person throw a rock at Boston’s Holocaust Memorial, which shattered a pane of glass on Monday night, according to WHDH.

Monday’s attack marks the second time the memorial has been vandalized in 2017, reports WHDH.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh (D) responded to the attack on Twitter, writing: “Today & every day Boston stands up against hate. I’m saddened to see such a despicable action in this great city. Thankful to public and @bostonpolice for quick arrest of the person responsible for vandalizing Holocaust Memorial.”



The Hill notes: “The memorial was erected in 1995 and contains six glass towers, representing the six million Jews who were killed and the six years of the Holocaust.”
