Berlin's memorial to the Jews murdered during the Nazi era was vandalized Saturday, Aug. 23, only a week after a similar memorial to gays and lesbians persecuted by the Nazis was damaged, police reported.
Swastikas were painted on the Berlin memorial
In Germany's national memorial to European Jewish victims of the Holocaust, seven of the steles that make up the monument were desecrated with 11 Nazi swastikas in red and black paint.

In response to last week's act of vandalism, 200 people protested in front of the gay and lesbian monument on Monday.
