An anti-Semitism organization says vandals have smashed 10 tombstones at a cemetery in the Romanian capital in “a premeditated act.”
The Center for Monitoring and Combating Anti-Semitism in Romania says the tombstones were broken into pieces at the Jewish cemetery in southern Bucharest overnight Monday, Holocaust Remembrance Day, when the millions of Jews killed by the Nazis are commemorated.
The center calls for an investigation and for the perpetrators to face justice.
