Nativity Scene in Spain Severely Vandalized

Country: Spain

Date of incident: December 7, 2020

Attack against: Faith

Area of case: Private



On December 7th, the nativity scene that is placed every year in the Eguzki square in Berriozar became the target of vandalism. Almost all figures were split in half and destroyed by unknown perpetrators. The figures are made out of wood and were freshly painted this year, which means that the budget for the new restoration is very small.

"They were freshly painted this year," lamented Maribel Vals, a member of the Asociación Cabalgata de Reyes, a group that will work to get the figures ready as soon as possible. "We are going to fix them as well as we can, since the budget is what it is," said Vals.
