Holocaust memorial vandalized in Boston

BOSTON, Massachusetts (KTRK) -- Police in Boston are investigating after someone vandalized the New England Holocaust Memorial overnight.

A plate of glass was busted out of one of the six glass towers.

The 54-foot tall glass towers are covered in millions of numbers that were tattooed on victim's arms during the Holocaust.

The memorial was initiated by a group of Holocaust survivors in the Boston area.

"The site offers a unique opportunity for reflection on the meaning of oppression and freedom and on the importance of a society's respect for human rights," according to the the New England Holocaust Memorial site.

Police have not said if surveillance video captured the vandals.
