Swedish Jewish Cemetery Vandalized

Download PDF for this date

A Jewish cemetery near Stockholm, Sweden, was desecrated Sunday.

Some 124 headstones were overturned by the unknown vandals, according to Salomon Berlinger, the head of the community.

It was the second such desecration in Sweden since last November.

Berlinger said this latest desecration is believed linked to the recent distribution of anti-Semitic pamphlets in 15 schools of Stockholm.
