The theft of the entrance sign to Auschwitz is only the latest in a long and sorry saga of defaming icons important to Judaism. Fortunately the culprits were caught and the eerily ironic signage was recovered. There was real outrage over the act and authorities moved quickly.
Good people do come forward when such things happen as have the many who contributed to the replacement of the Menorah on public square destroyed last month. Councilwoman Burns and emplyees at the City Clerks office are among the latest to donate.
You can make a similar statement by sending a donation to the City Comptroller at 245 Washington Street. Mark holiday decorations on the check.
