Haute-Savoie. Viry: The stele of Marianne Cohn was degraded

The school has had Marianne Cohn's name on the front line since 2019. Since June 2019, a stele has been dedicated in his honor. It is located near the Passage des Justes and the public buildings of capital (school, town hall).

Memorallem denounces the desecration of stele. "Marianne Cohn’s face reflects the beauty of life. But, insidiously, she would like to be erased. Multiple scratches actually try to disfigure the face of Marianne Cohn, as if to murder her again.

Maurice Monsigny, the president of the association does not mince words. The association released a statement in which it condemned "an attitude and act fuelled by hatred, violence, and anti-Semitism." A complaint was filed.
