A Jewish cemetery in central Germany suffered major vandalism. Workers arriving Monday found that 56 gravestones had been overturned in the cemetery at Kassel, which has stones dating back to the 16th century. Police spokesperson Volker Pieper told JTA that the vandalism was the worst he had ever seen and must have been committed by several perpetrators.
