Anti-Semitic attack sparks Italy protestMondovì (Italy) (AFP) – Hundreds of people carrying candles protested in an Italian town Friday after unknown vandals wrote “Jews Here” on the front door of the house of a Nazi concentration camp survivor. A Star of David and the words “Juden Hier,” German for “Jews Here”, were daubed in black paint on the door in the Piedmont town of Mondovi, where a member of the Italian anti-Fascist resistance lived until her death in 1996. Lidia Beccaria Rolfi’s son Aldo, who lives in the house now, said the attack followed the publication of an article in which he talked about his mother and warned of the rise of anti-Semitism.
