Nazi Slogans Sprayed on Jewish Graves on Germany
A Jewish cemetery has been desecrated by vandals in Germany.
Six tombstones were targeted by the vandals, who sprayed graffiti including the Nazi slogan “Sieg Heil” and the phrase “S**t Jews” on them.
Police are now conducting an investigation into the attack on the graveyard in the northeastern city of Rostock and have said they have a good idea of who was behind it.
“We are tracking one suspect in particular,” a police spokesman said. “There was probably a group with him but I cannot say for sure.” It comes after a violent antisemitic attack on a rabbi in Berlin. Daniel Alter, who was with his six-year-old daughter at the time, was struck several times in the face and was left with a fractured jawbone.
Germany’s Jewish community has risen to around 200,000 following the influx of Jews from the Former Soviet Union.
