On 22nd May a group of American tourists discovered and reported that the statue of Raoul Wallenberg (Swedish diplomat who helped rescue thousands of Jews in Hungary during World War II) located in the 2nd district of Budapest was vandalized. Unknown perpetrators placed two pairs of pig’s feet on the statue. This vandalizing act resembles the one in 2009 when similarly pig’s feet were placed on the memorial entitled “Shoes on the Danube Promenade” which honors the Jewish victims who were killed by fascist Arrow Cross militiamen in Budapest during World War II.
