Police are lifting the fingerprints from 27 empty Corona beer bottles found in a park in Midwood, Brooklyn, in the hopes of locating a group of anti-Semitic vandals. On Friday, a day after the anniversary of the violent pogrom known as Kristallnacht, which took place in Germany in 1938 leading up to the Holocaust and World War II, vandals attacked on Ocean Parkway between Avenues I and J, spray painting Nazi swastikas, “KKK” and “f*** the Jews”, as well as torching three parked cars.
