Swastikas on Melbourne-area theater poster for Diary of Anne Frank

The Peridot Theatre Company of the Melbourne, Australia suburb of Mount Waverly suffered the spray-painting of swastikas on the poster for its production of the Diary of Anne Frank over the weekend..

The company wrote on its Facebook page after the attack that it was "upset, angry, disgusted" at the action which it called "sickening". Following Sunday's virtually sold-out matinee, the theater wrote, "Thanks for all the messages of support following last night's upsetting incident. We've cleaned up the sign and reported the incident to the police. The despicable vandalism just underlines the fact that stories such as Anne Frank's still need telling."
