PICTURES: Swastika Graffiti On Jewish Gravestones In Germany's Kroepelin Cemetery

Posted: Updated:

Gravestones were desecrated and sprayed with blue swastikas at a Jewish cemetery in Germany, less than two months after the last antisemitic attack at the graveyard.

Swastika grafitti was also sprayed on an information plaque at the Jewish cemetery in Kroepelin, the only cemetery in the country which was restored and renovated by the government.
