Nazi Graffiti Attack On Sydney Home Targets Jewish And LGBT Communities


A Sydney home has been graffitied with anti-semitic and homophobic symbols, on the eve of the holiest day for the Jewish community. On Monday, September 25, a house in Kensington was covered with the cryptic symbols and messages. The brick home was spray painted with Nazi swastikas, the word “gay”, the Star of David and the Chinese symbol for “sky” or “day.” A message in german was also spray painted on the garage door, and translated to “after the rain comes the sun.” Located in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, Kensington has a large Jewish community. The attack comes on the eve of Yom Kippur, one of the biggest days in the Jewish calendar. Co-CEO of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry, Alex Ryvchin, spoke to the Herald regarding the incident and the rise in anti-semitic attacks.
