After graffiti was discovered at a Jewish cemetery in Argentina last week, the Jewish community of an Argentinian town took the opportunity bring members of other religious groups together to remove the swastikas in a special ceremony.

The local Jewish community of Sante Fe, a province about 300 miles northwest of Buenos Aires, invited evangelical Christians, Catholics and Muslims as well as representatives from other local groups, and it was streamed online.

 A video showed several people brushing over swastikas painted near the ground, followed by a series of comments from representatives of different groups.

“These are acts of hatred and can’t remain unpunished,” Horacio Roitman, the Santa Fe representative of the Argentinian Jewish group DAIA, said. “A clarification of what happened is owed to the whole society.”

The vandalism at the Santa Fe Jewish cemetery comes after a series of incidents at the biggest Jewish cemetery in the country, in Buenos Aires. In that case, no Nazi or otherwise antisemitic symbols were found, and Jewish leaders denounced a lack of security.
