Horrifying antisemitic graffiti has been found on the beachfront at Rottingdean, near Brighton.
The graffiti consists of neo-Nazi slogans including: “Put Jews in ovens”, “Auschwitz was a good thing!”, “Burn the Jews”, “F*** Jews” and “Hail Hitler”.
Simon Cobbs, a leader of Sussex Friends of Israel, said: “Once again the spectre of antisemitism rears its ugly head on the south coast in a random location. One has to question the environment that allows and encourages such unalloyed hatred to be so openly expressed.”
The graffiti was found near a sports area named after Connor Saunders, who died in Rottingdean in April 2012 after being punched by a teenager in a pointless act of violence. The sports area is intended to offer young people a better alternative to loitering with nothing to do.
Anybody with information about the graffiti should contact the police on 101.
