Historic Jewish Cemetery in Croatia Vandalized

By: JTA

(JTA) — Vandals seriously damaged several graves in a more than 400-year-old Jewish cemetery in Split, Croatia.

According to Ana Lebl, the president of the Jewish community in Split, unknown persons forced open three graves and also damaged their headstones and fences. In addition, they knocked over and broke a fourth headstone and damaged other tombstone decoration.

The attack took place between April 10 and April 13, Lebl said, but the vandals left no graffiti or slogans that pointed to an anti-Semitic motive for the attack.

“The damage was reported to the police who came promptly and made written and photographic evidence,” she said.

The cemetery, located above the city on Marjan Hill, was founded in 1573 and in use until 1945. It is listed as a cultural heritage monument.

    Yes we can forgive, but never forget ! It will never erase what was done in the past , by narcistic and sociopath so called Leaders

  9. I should have said some religious leaders teach hate and destruction. It is not the religion it is the interpretation. Today in Germany 6 Arabs beat up a man because he was an Israeli Jew. This is very much like Warsaw,Germany,Russia,Britain ,France in the 1930′s r

    Desecration is on the increase. What kind of thinking would lead to such destruction and why? There is so much beauty on the earth. Me thinks it's time for the Moshiach to come and fix this world up for we sure cannot do it on our own.
