Berlin police are trying to track down neo-Nazis who hurled a smoke bomb into a Jewish kindergarten over the weekend and covered the building with Nazi graffiti. The attack took place at a time when no one was in the building. The smoke bomb failed to ignite and a police spokesman said the attack did not cause serious damage or endanger children or staff at the school.
Nazi symbols and anti-Semitic phrases including “Auschwitz,” “Juden Raus” [Jews, Out!] “Sieg Heil” [Hail Victory – the common Nazi salute to Hitler], and “Weg hier” [Get away from here] were spray painted on the building’s outer walls, as well as on toys that had been lying around in the school’s playground.
