The Jewish cemetery in Hamburg was desecrated by unknown vandals on Sunday night. Many tombstones were overthrown and graves trampled. The Hamburg Kehillah announced a high reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprits. This is the 64th case of cemetery desecration in Germany during the past two years.
