Germany: Herzl plaque vandalized on anniversary of Kristallnacht

Via Everyday Antisemitism, RIAS:
RIAS has reported another incident of vandalism in Berlin on the anniversary of Kristallnacht.
Kreuzberg’s Mehringplatz is home to the „Pfad der Visionäre” (“Path of World Visionaries”) installation. This features panels set into the ground, quoting selected personalities from UN Nations. Each panel includes the flag of the country of the person’s origin.

Theodor Herzl represents Israel. On 9th November 2015, the 77th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the glass covering the panel was destroyed and the Israeli flag scratched off. It was the only panel to receive such treatment.
