LONDON —A big swastika was daubed on the business headquarters of a Jewish businessman in London, in what he suspects is a antisemitic attack, The Jewish Chronicle reported.
Lance Forman – whose father is a Holocaust survivor – recently announced he was standing for Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party in the May 23 European elections.
Police are examining CCTV around the factory.
The business H. Forman & Son is Britain’s oldest salmon curer. It was founded by Forman’s great-grandfather who fled the pogroms of Russia in the late 19th century to settle in London’s East End.
Forman told the Jewish Chronicle: “My dad fled the Nazis in Poland and is a Holocaust survivor who spent the war years as a child in a Siberian prison camp.
“He has worked with HET (the Holocaust Educational Trust) to teach children about the horrors of antisemitism. So the fact that we have been targeted in this antisemitic way is quite horrific and sick.
