(NEWS) German Jewish Cemeteries Vandalized

"The Germany city of Bremen will help the local Jewish community pay for repairs to the historic cemetery in Hastedt, which was damaged by unknown vandals.

According to Jewish community vice chair Grigori Pantijelew, 12 tombstones from the 1920s and 1930s were knocked down overnight on Aug. 2; some were severely damaged. Such cemeteries depend on public care; descendants either fled Nazi Germany or were killed."
