A war memorial has been daubed with swastikas and disturbing antisemitic hate messages.
The vile messages, which refer to the murder of Jews and gassing of soldiers, was found on the memorial in Rhyl, Wales.
The graffiti also continued the line, in German, that “the time has come for a Reich [empire]: we must exterminate the Jews.”
Richard Kendrick, Rhyl’s Poppy Appeal organiser for the Royal British Legion, said: “Someone has put graffiti on two of the stones and plaques. These stones are dedicated to the men and women from Rhyl who have given their lives for us over the past 125 years. I can’t understand who would do such an awful thing.”
Mr Kendrick went on to urge anyone with information to call police before adding: “Sad day when someone would do such an awful act.”
Councillor Brian Jones said: “It is a total disrespect to the people that fought for the freedom of the country.”
