The Embassy of the United States of America in Romania unequivocally condemns the recent vandalism carried out against the Elie Wiesel House in Sighet. The statements denigrating Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel, President Trump, and other world leaders represent a deplorable anti-Semitic attack and an egregious affront to the victims and survivors of the Holocaust. We call on all to denounce this act and speak up wherever and whenever there is an expression of hatred or prejudice. The Embassy encourages anyone with information about the crime to come forward to assist the Romanian authorities in their investigation.
