Austria: Nazi victim memorial, synagogue vandalized

Several recent incidents in Austria:

In Salzburg the intercom of a synagogue was vandalized with paint and glue on November 9th, the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht..  There have been several similar incidents recently, though not only to Jewish institutions.

Also in Salzburg, nine pavement stones commemorating Nazi victims were vandalized in mid-October.  A suspect was arrested and admitted he did it because he hates Jews.

Update: Original report mistakenly located the synagogue in Vienna.
