Police Search for Vandals Who Broke into Synagogue and Destroyed Sacred Items

Munich police are searching for vandals who broke into a synagogue there yesterday and destroyed a number of sacred items including a Torah scroll. Police said the act was non-political and had no connection with the arson four months ago when seven residents of the Jewish home for the aged in Munich perished in a fire. Dr. Hans Lamm, chairman of the Jewish community in Munich said the synagogue desecration was a new act of anti-Semitic vandalism.
