The President of the Jewish Municipality of Mostar, Amir Gross Kabiri, said today regarding this morning’s incident in which a swastika was spray-painted on the front of ‘The Hub of Fine Arts’, that this is proof that the fight against anti-Semitism and xenophobia is far from over.
“Early today, the facade of The Hub of Fine Arts was spray-painted with a swastika. This act, which is nothing less than a hate crime, is proof that despite the positive steps that have been made recently, the fight against anti-Semitism and xenophobia is far from over,” said Kabiri.
At the same time, he pointed out that the Jewish Municipality of Mostar believes that the individuals who committed this crime do not represent the citizens of Mostar or the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
“We will not be swayed and will continue to contribute to the community with full force in the fields of culture, sports, economy and education,” emphasized Kabiri.
