Nazi swastika painted on Cofiwch Dryweryn wall in Ceredigion
CARDIFF, june 30, 2020-A Nazi sign has been sprayed on a famous monument to a flooded Welsh village.
Police have been made aware of the swastika on the Cofiwch Dryweryn wall.
And local MS Elin Jones said: “This is not a prank – it is sinister and dangerous.”
The painted message ‘Cofiwch Dryweryn’ (Remember Tryweryn) – a reference to the Welsh village that was flooded to provide water for Liverpool – was first daubed on a derelict wall at the side of the A487, overlooking Llanrhystud in Ceredigion, in the early 1960s after the failure of a campaign to prevent the flooding.
The graffiti has since become an unofficial national landmark.
For years campaigners have fought to save the wall which is situated around nine miles south of Aberystwyth. (walesonline.co.uk)
