The anti-Semitic slogans were discovered at a section of the Berlin Wall belonging to the iconic East Side Gallery, officials announced Saturday.

The outdoor gallery features over 100 original murals by artists from all over the world, who painted their works on the largest surviving segment of the Wall. The unknown vandals defaced the picture called "Vaterland" by German artist Günther Schaefer, scrawling hate speech over the mural showing the Star of David on the German flag.  more
