Download PDF for this date

Police announced the arrest today of three suspects in a second anti-Semitic act of vandalism in Bamberg in 48 hours. The three were held in connection with the daubing of gravestones in the Jewish cemetery in Bamberg with swastikas and anti-Semitic scribbling which occurred last night.

Similar smearing were found on a monument at the site of the Bamberg synagogue destroyed by the Nazis in 1938. The defacements were found Sunday shortly before the monument was dedicated by the city.
