Infamous inscription ‘Juden Raus’ on railway station in Cluj, Romania

An inscription ‘Juden Raus’ (Jews out) was found on one of the pillars of the railway station in Cluj, a city in northwestern Romania. Police have been notified, according to EJPress.org.

The MCA Romania – The Center for Monitoring and Combating Anti-Semitism in Romania has addressed a complaint to the Romanian railways, the General Prosecutor of Romania and the Ministry of Transportations.

But according to Jewish journalist Andrea Ghita, the inscription was still there on Friday. ‘’The station administration and the Romanian Railways do not seem to care a about the inscriptions and anti-Semitic symbols that pollute the platform,’’ she said.

She recalled that on the wall of the Cluj railway station there is a plaque in memory of the 16,000 Jews deported from this city by the Nazis to Auschwitz in the summer of 1944.

‘’We hope that the perpetrators will be quickly discovered but judging from recent incidents such as the profanation of cemeteries and other anti-Semitic, anti-Hungarian or anti-Roma inscriptions, I have no hope that they will be identified,’’ Ghita said.
