Spanish Town Votes to Change Anti-Jewish Name

Residents in a tiny Spanish town voted on Sunday to ditch the town’s name - Castrillo Matajudios, or Castrillo Kill Jews.

According to AFP, the residents voted 29-19 in favor of scrapping the northern Spanish town's name, in existence since at least 1623. An announcement on the vote was made last month.
