France: Hundreds of gravestones vandalised at Jewish cemetery

Lifted from the the Lower-Rhine Jewish Community website
JSS News reports that the French Minister of Interior Bernard Caseneuve announced today that hundreds of gravestones were vandalised at the 18th-century cemetery at Sarre-Union.  He strongly condemned the desecraton calling it a most "odious act".

The Bas-Rhin Jewish community is one of the oldest in France.  Sadly, Jewish cemeteries in the region are among those that are most frequently targeted by vandals.
