Memorial for synagogue destroyed by Nazis vandalized in Halle

- A memorial dedicated to a synagogue destroyed by the Nazis in 1938 was vandalized in Halle around midnight on Sunday.

Footage shot on Monday shows the message "Trust no one," written on the steps of the memorial, which is a replica of the entryway of the old synagogue.

Police apprehended a 36-year-old woman red-handed as she vandalized the monument in the early hours of Monday morning. An investigation has been launched into whether the incident had an antisemitic motivation, although the suspect reportedly denied any connection.
