Three persons, charged with desecrating the Jewish cemetery in Ehrfurt were arrested in Ehrfurt yesterday.

They were charged with having destroyed 95 of the 130 tombstones in the cemetery. They were identified as members of the Wiking Bund. The police published a statement expressing, in behalf of the entire population, its profound condemnation of the attack.

The Israelitisches Familienblatt states that the terror has been continuing for the last four years in Ehrfurt. Windows in Jewish houses are being broken and peaceful persons are constantly attacked.
