(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Two more cases of cemetery desecrations occurred in Flammerscheim and Kirchheim, Rhineland. All tombstones in the two cemeteries were overthrown and besmirched.

These desecrations bring the number during the past three years to sixty-two. Within the past two years these cemeteries have been entered by vandals three times.
