Young people from the Jewish Community will take part in the cleaning of Bulgaria's capital Sofia from xenophobic signs and graffiti.

The news was announced after the conclusion of the meeting of Sofia's Mayor Yordanka Fandakova with representatives of Jewish organizations in Bulgaria.

The latter have expressed readiness to finance the installment of security cameras at the Sofia school “Dimcho Debelyanov,” which is the only Jewish school in the country. Fandakova said that regardless of the fact the school is a public one, it would be better to incorporate the cameras in the video monitoring center of the City Hall.

Anti-Semitic graffiti including the Star of David equated with a Nazi swastika and the words "stop occupation" were spray painted on the wall of the school at the end of March.

The meeting participants have also discussed the maintenance of the Jewish cemetery in Sofia.
