Man urinates against Holocaust memorial in broad daylight in Berlin


RIAS have received a report that a man was seen urinating against a Holocaust memorial in Berlin, Germany, over the summer.

The man, said to be white, in his 30s, with short, shaved hair, was seen desecrating the memorial on a busy street, during the day.

The Deportationsmahnmal Putlitzbrücke memorial, commemorates the site of a train station in Moabit, where over 32,000 Jews were transported from Berlin to concentration camps during the Holocaust.

Since its unveiling in 1987, the monument has been subjected to repeated acts of vandalism. In 1992, it was badly damaged in an explosives attack and had to be rebuilt.
