Download PDF for this date

Another Jewish cemetery has been desecrated to-day in the town of Waldmohr, in the Saare District. A large number of gravestones were smashed, and inscription plates fixed to the tombstones were carried off and swastikas painted on the graves.

The Jewish community of Waldmohr is offering a reward for the detection of the vandals.
