Yad Vashem's reaction to swastika graffiti outside Union Station in Washington D.C.

29 January 2022

"The use of swastikas, a symbol of evil, cruelty and death, as graffiti outside of Union Station in the capital of the United States of America, a mere two miles from the White House, is repugnant. Following the observance of International Holocaust Remembrance Day and juxtaposed to the fact that antisemitic materials can be easily purchased with the click of a button, these incidents highlight a very distressing situation in the US and the world over. We can not allow such forms of hated to run rampant. Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, gathers historically accurate content related to the Holocaust and disseminates it to the world in order to combat all forms ignorance and hatred."
