Supporters of Lazio Roma have abused an image of Anne Frank on Sunday to announce their antisemitic views. The hard core of Lazio Roma supporters has a long history of racism, antisemitism and extremism. In this case, the Lazio fans meant to offend supporters of city fellow AS Roma.

Shocked

We are shocked by these anti-Jewish expressions, which are extremely painful to those who have experienced the consequences of the persecution of the Jews. Fighting football-related antisemitism is part of our educational activities.

We are pleased to see that others, including Italian football clubs, have expressed their indignation about this action.
