Vandals Desecrate Jewish Cemetery in Germany

A Jewish cemetery in eastern Germany has been vandalized for the second time in the space of eighteen months, with the unknown perpetrators still at large.

Police in the city of Köthen — located in the state of Saxony-Anhalt — reported that 40 gravestones in the cemetery, which dates back to the 18th century, had been overturned.

The vandalism is believed to have taken place between Sept. 15-19, with an estimated damage of 20,000 Euros, the local police and public prosecutor’s office said on Wednesday.

The cemetery was last targeted in May 2022, when 16 gravestones were overturned. No arrests were reported following that incident.
