Residents near Dollis Hill station in Brent reacted quickly when Nazi graffiti appeared on their street. The community came together and set to work to clean off the graffiti and were helped by a local councillor. Worryingly some of the graffiti appeared to be outside the homes of Jewish families.
Lucy Cox, who discovered the graffiti, said:
I'm horrified to see my Jewish neighbours targeted in this way. Anti-semitism is real on the far right and we won't tolerate it in Dollis Hill.
We will be holding a vigil in solidarity on Tuesday evening at 7pm at the bus stop on Hamilton Road. (Near Dollis Hill tube). I hope lots of local people can join us to show our community is united against hate
Sadly there has been anti-semitism in the area in the past when a memorial in Gladstone Park to prisoners of war and concentration camp victims by Fred Kormis was vandalised in 2003. This too led to a counter demonstration opposing racism and anti-semitism. The memorial now has Grade 2 listed status.
