(WASHINGTON, D.C., 12/11/20) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today condemned neo-Nazi vandalism targeting a memorial to Holocaust victim Anne Frank in Idaho. The vandalism of the Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial in Boise, Idaho, was discovered Tuesday morning. It included Nazi swastika stickers and the words, “we are everywhere.”

“This disgusting act of hate must be repudiated by local, state and national leaders across the political spectrum,” said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper. “Only a depraved mind would consider targeting a memorial to one of the victims of Nazi hatred and violence.”
Washington, D.C.-based CAIR and the American Muslim community are standing in solidarity with all those challenging anti-Black racism, Islamophobia, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and white supremacy.
