Cruel internet trolls have left an anti-Semitic comment on a review for a cafe owned by the granddaughter of a Holocaust survivor – days after a swastika was sprayed on her business.
Aliza Shuvaly arrived at her café Aliza’s Place in Chadstone in south-east Melbourne on July 4 to find an enormous swastika and ‘The Holocaust is a lie’ sprawled across the businesses fence.
Days later, an internet troll wrote a review for the cafe stating; ‘Auschwitz has better food than this, who do you keep trying to impress me with this?’
‘Auschwitz also came with a pool, soccer field, hospital along with 10 other facilities for your convenience and you still cry over it.’
Aliza Shuvaly, said she arrived to her café in Chadstone in south-east Melbourne at 9am on July 4 to find an enormous swastika and ‘The Holocaust is a lie’ sprawled across the businesses fence (pictured)
Days later, an internet troll wrote a review for Aliza’s Place Café on Batesford Road stating; ‘Auschwitz has better food than this, who do you keep trying to impress me with this?’
Aliza Shuvaly (pictured) says she finds it hard to believe the attack wasn’t premeditated and feels like a ‘target’
Ms Shuvaly, who owns the cafe, spoke of the pain the graffiti had caused her when it was first discovered.
‘It doesn’t feel like a target, but it [also brings up] a lot of memories and [has made me feel] heartbroken,’ she told 9News earlier this month.
The Anti-Defamation Commission of Victoria has condemned the attacks and have called upon police to ensure harsh penalties are given to those responsible.
‘Another day, another sickening attack on the Jewish community and on the memory of the Holocaust,’ Chairman Dr Dvir Abramovich told the Herald Sun.
‘Anti-Semitism is becoming all too common. We need to make sure that we do not reach the point where Jews in Victoria will not feel safe walking the streets or in their businesses.
‘I hope that in the days ahead, the community as a whole will stand together and raise its voice in condemning this heartbreaking incident,’ he concluded.
Police said that the attacks happened in the Chadstone area between 6pm on Wednesday evening to 6am July 4.
Anyone with any information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Aliza Shuvaly for comment.
