Alain Fontanel's "anxiety"
In recent months, inscriptions targeting migrants and those who host them and anti-Semitic inscriptions have been drawn multiple times on town halls, schools and homes of elected officials in Alsace. According to the newspaper L'Alsace , anti-Semitic and anti-migrant inscriptions were discovered on Thursday morning at the Bootzheim school in Bas-Rhin.
"The city of Strasbourg has an even greater responsibility, by its history, to denounce these acts," said AFP Alain Fontanel, who said he felt both "concern over the recurrence of these acts and the determination of the public authorities to find and punish those who commit them ".
