Antisemitic graffiti on the “Visit Novi Sad” builboard

Antisemitic graffiti Novi Sad 1

In December 2020, in Novi Sad, an unknown person or a group painted a graffiti “Judenfrei” and a crossed-out Star of David on the billboard with a picture of the Novi Sad synagogue. The City authorities reacted swiftly, and the graffiti was painted over the same day. Two months later, in January 2021, just a day before the International Holocaust Remembrance Day commemoration, the same billboard was targeted again with antisemitic graffiti. This time the offender(s) painted a crossed-out Star of David, the “Celtic Cross,” and the abbreviation “SS” (SS refers to the Nazi military units Schutzstaffel.) The authorities painted over these symbols promptly, too.
