Unknown vandals desecrated Holocaust ‘’memorial cobblestones’’ in Brussels fixed to the pavement outside the former home of a Jewish family whose members were deported and murdered by the Nazis in Auschwitz.

An agency which broadcasts news on the Jewish community in Belgium reported the cobbelstones bearing the names of the members of the Kichka family were coverred with red concrete. The family was arrested in 1942, held in the Mechelen transit camp before being deported to Auschwitz. Henri Kichka, the only survivor of the family, expressed ‘’deep shock’’ at the attack perpetrated against the memory of his parents and sisters.
