More than 100 Jewish tombs were desecrated at a cemetery in eastern France. Swastikas and other Nazi insignia were scrawled on 127 gravestones at the Herrlisheim-Hasttatt cemetery near Colmar last week. Slogans in praise of Hitler and the words “Juden Raus” — or “Jews Out” — also were painted on the cemetery gates.
