Vandals decorate Danish asylum centre with Nazi symbols

Local believes culprits were inspired by German events

Unknown perpetrators vandalised Lyngbygaard, the Red Cross asylum centre in Trustrup in east Jutland, with Nazi symbols last night.

The vandals wrote that this was a “first warning” and set fire to a car parked at the centre.

“The people behind the vandalism are pathetic individuals who have probably been inspired by similar action in Germany a few days ago,” Erik Boye Kirk, a local volunteer at the centre, told DR Nyheder.

Kirk revealed that the local community has welcomed the asylum centre with open arms and many volunteer there.

The centre, which used to be an elderly home and houses 120 asylum-seekers, has been vandalised twice already this year: in March and again in early August.
