Two Holocaust survivors brutally beaten in Amsterdam Attackers called Shmuel and Diana Blog ‘dirty Jews’; beating left them wheelchair-bound and cost Shmuel his sight
Dutch police are investigating the brutal beating of an elderly Amsterdam Jewish couple.
Diana Blog, 86, and her husband of 56 years Shmuel, 87, are both Holocaust survivors. Diana has scars from being attacked by Auschwitz guard dogs.
The August 4 attack left Shmuel blind and with a broken thigh bone, and Diana suffering from “extreme pains,” according to the news site Ynet.
Both have been in a rehabilitation center in the month since the attack, and are now confined to wheelchairs.
According to the Blogs, the two male attackers dressed in black knocked loudly on their door and claimed to be police officers. When Shmuel opened the door, the men charged in, pointing guns and hitting and kicking the elderly couple as they demanded their jewelry and other valuables. At one point, they tied them up and began ripping jewelry off Diana’s body.
