Jewish cemetery in Kosice, Slovakia, vandalized

 

Vandals have toppled or otherwise damaged 55 tombstones in the old Orthodox section of the Jewish cemetery in Kosice, Slovakia.  The damage — amounting to 50,000 euro — was discovered on Monday afternoon.

An article in the online publication Kosice Korzar runs pictures of the toppled stones.

The attack took place almost 10 years ago  to the day of the last vandal attack on the cemetery, when three young teenagers damaged 135 gravestones. The Jewish community has now said  it will install a camera security system.
