Anne Frank mural vandalised with ‘Free Gaza’ graffiti in Milan

Two murals calling for fighting against antisemitism were vandalised with Free Gaza graffiti in Milan, Italy.

One of the murals, depicting Anne Frank holding an Israeli flag, has been repainted with the words „Free Gaza.” The Palestinian girl next to Anne Frank, who is burning the flag of the Hamas terrorist organisation, was not touched by the painters.

Another mural was also painted over, removing it from the wall completely. The mural known as the „Warsaw Ghetto Boy” depicted a child surrendering to the Nazis and was based on a 1943 photograph.

Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini condemned the defacement of the murals, saying Italians must stand together against hatred.
