Another Jewish cemetery was shamefully desecrated in Germany.

Unknown vandals invaded the Jewish cemetery at Coepinick, near Berlin, last night, doing much damage, overthrowing five large memorials.

Steps have been taken by the Berlin police authorities to apprehend the culprits. Suspicion exists that members of a youth organization who were seen in the vicinity on an excursion yesterday afternoon are responsible.
