Swastika painted outside home in Shirehall Park, Hendon

Times Series: Swastika painted outside home Swastika painted outside home

A giant swastika was painted outside a house in Hendon in the middle of the night.

The family, in Shirehall Park, awoke to find the blue Nazi symbol emblazoned on the wall above their front porch on Monday morning.

The homeowners, who are Jewish, have since painted over the symbol, which was the emblem of the German Nazi party.

The Community Security Trust, a Jewish security company that monitors anti-Semitism, said: “We are aware of the graffiti and we are working with the police on all reported incidents of anti-Semitism.”

Barnet Police have now launched an investigation into the incident, which is being treated as criminal damage. No arrests have been made.

It seems the swastika was a little too complicated for the "artist".

Or perhaps the Beano as he has chosen a character from a children's book as a nickname.

The swastika (the word is sanskrit), itself is not a racist symbol, for thousands of years its been a symbol of good luck, but sadly, was adopted by Hitler over 90 years ago as the party emblem, and now is viewed as a symbol of hate.
