Police: Vandals attack Berlin ‘Platform 17’ Holocaust memorial

A Holocaust memorial at a Berlin train station where tens of thousands of Jews were once shipped to Nazi concentration camps was vandalized overnight, police said Wednesday.

Several candles near the train tracks at Grunewald station had been knocked over, and an Israeli flag was burned, Berlin police said in a statement. Such acts are considered crimes in Germany.

The Grunewald memorial is called “Platform 17,” commemorating the more than 50,000 Jews transported from the station to concentration camps.
