Auschwitz vvandalizedAnti-Semitic vandalism was discovered at the site of the Auschwitz Nazi death camp on Tuesday, according to staff at the Auschwitz memorial and museum.

The graffiti was found at the Auschwitz II-Birkenau site in Poland, the largest of the 40 camps that made up the Nazi complex. Nine of the barracks were spray-painted with anti-Semitic slurs – all denying the Holocaust.

The museum said in a statement: "Such incident – an offense against the Memorial Site – is, above all, an outrageous attack on the symbol of one of the great tragedies in human history and an extremely painful blow to the memory of all the victims of the German Nazi Auschwitz-Birkenau camp."

Polish police are investigating the crime, according to the  museum. Staff put out a PSA to any pedestrians who witnessed anyone near the death camp on Tuesday morning.
