Download PDF for this date

Eleven tombstones have been overturned and the graves desecrated on the Jewish cemetery outside the town of Preussisch-Oldendorf in Eastern Westphalia, a district now entirely without Jews and under the jurisdiction of the Jewish community of Minden. The police and the district attorney are investigating the outrage, but no leads have so far been turned up.
