Download PDF for this date

The ninety-third Jewish cemetery to be desecrated in Germany in the last few years was defiled today when the cemetery in Grunstadt, in the Pfalz region of Bavaria was broken into and the main entrance destroyed and six gravestones removed. Among the tombs violated was that of M. Schmidt, a Jewish war hero.
