Albuquerque, NM - Vandals damaged the New Mexico Holocaust Museum and Gellert Center for Education on Thursday just as the burial of congressman and civil rights leader John Lewis was being televised from Atlanta.

Museum executive director Leon Natker told the Albuquerque Journal the large window of the downtown Albuquerque museum was shattered.

Behind the window was a large photo of an early 1960s civil rights march, part of a movement in which Lewis was a leader.

“It can’t be a coincidence that it happened just as the funeral of John Lewis was being broadcast on television,” said Natker. “It was a hit-and-run, and it was done by a coward.”
