BARCELONA— ‘’Pigs, get out of the country,” was spray painted on the wall of a synagogue in Barcelona last week.
The graffiti was later erased following an order of the city’s Deputy Mayor Gerardo Pisarello, who called for an investigation into the incident.
“Barcelona is a city which is proud of its differences,” Pisarello said . » »We will not allow actions of intolerance.”
The synagogue is no longer used. It serves as a cultural center and a museum and as a site to host community events.
