Mt. Davidson cross is a historic landmark in San Francisco and earlier this week (the police report says the 23rd), the plaque at the base of the sculpture commemorating the Armenian Genocide’s 1.5 million dead was stolen in what police are not ruling out as a possible hate crime.The official history of the landmark here.
