Vandalizing of synagogue brings back painful memories for Holocaust survivor

| August 8, 2011

Seeing a swastika painted on his synagogue wall brought back painful memories for Holocaust survivor Edward Fisch.

"Every time I see a swastika, I think of the Nazis marching up and down the street and grabbing people and shooting people and killing people," Fisch said outside North York's Beth Tikvah synagogue the morning of Friday, Aug. 5.

"It just brings back terrible, terrible memories, even though I was just a kid."

Vandals used a stencil to spray paint a black and red swastika on the synagogue Thursday afternoon. The words "Islam will rule" was spray painted below the Nazi symbol.

"I don't know what to say. It's just so ugly, so ridiculous," Fisch said. "I truly don't know why they do this. It is just so hurtful."
