The childhood home of the late Nobel Peace Prize winning Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel has been vandalized with antisemitic graffiti.
The house in Sighetu Marmatiei, which now operates as a museum, was Wiesel’s childhood home before his family were deported to Auschwitz, where all but Wiesel were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators. He later became famed as a novelist and an advocate for peace, winning the Nobel Peace Prize. The home was made into a museum in 2002.
The house was vandalized with graffiti reading “Paedophile. Jewish Nazi who is in hell with Hitler”. The police are investigating the vandalism.
