A Jewish cemetery in the Estonian capital of Tallinn was vandalized over the weekend, authorities confirmed on Tuesday. At the same time, an area near a bus stop in the city was tagged with large swastikas.
Public broadcaster ERR reported that five gravestones were overturned in Tallinn’s 110-year-old Rahumae cemetery, home to a large Jewish section, in the early hours of Sunday.
“This ugly act of vandalism where our ancestors rest in peace, and where everyone thinks of their spirituality, their connection to past generations, and human values, is insulting, frightening, and unacceptable in our society,” said the Jewish Community of Estonia organization in a statement.
