Anti-Semitic graffiti painted on door of Italian Holocaust survivor's home

Graffiti including a Star of David and the words “Juden Hier,” or Jews Here, were painted on the door of the son of an Italian Holocaust survivor in Italy.

Lidia Beccaria Rolfi, a resistance fighter and survivor of the Ravensbrueck concentration camp in Germany, lived in the home in Mondovi, in the northwest part of the country, until her death in 1996.

Her son, Aldo, currently lives in the home. The graffiti appeared after Aldo Rolfi published an article about anti-Semitism and remembering his mother in honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Jan. 27, The Associated Press reported.

Hundreds of people carrying candles and some carrying yellow stars came out on Friday evening in support of Rolfi and to protest against anti-Semitism.
