Romania: 73 Kevarim damaged in hate crime


Days after Romanian media reported about neglect at the Jewish cemetery of Husi in the country’s northeast, 73 of its headstones were smashed in a suspected hate crime.

The scope of the devastation this week in Husi, which used to have a large Jewish community, makes the vandalism there one of the worst reported in Europe this year.

The Fedrom umbrella group of Romanian Jews condemned the vandalism in a statement published Wednesday.

“Such events of a profoundly anti-Semitic nature cannot be accepted in the democratic world, and seriously affect democracy in Romania,” wrote Aurel Vainer, who heads Fedrom.
