Hate slogans have been found spray-painted at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem. Police have launched an investigation.
The anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic graffiti were found in numerous places in the memorial on Monday morning.
One slogan read "Hitler, thank you for the Holocaust" and was written in Hebrew, said police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld.
He said police had launched an investigation and that no suspects had been identified.
One slogan fuelled suspicion that a small group of ultra-Orthodox Jews who are opposed to the state of Israel could have been responsible: "The war of the Zionist regime is not the war of the Jewish people," it read.
Yad Vashem is the world's biggest memorial to the Nazi extermination of around six million Jews in Europe during World War II.

No other player in the German national team personifies a "never give up" attitude more than Bastian Schweinsteiger. The decision to make him captain seems obvious and appropriate.
Bastian Schweinsteiger is due to take over the job of Philipp Lahm as Germany's new national team captain. Coach Joachim Löw has also announced his new assistant coach.
