Youths Desecrate Holocaust Memorial

Lowest Of The Low - Antisemitism In Russia Continues To Climb:

Russian TV aired a video showing youths disrupting the peace at a Jewish cemetery in Nizhny Novgorod, and attempting to dislodge fences surrounding the graves. The local police have launched an investigation in to the matter following the release of the movie.

The youths can be seen running through the cemetery, at one point bending over, apparently to spit on one of the graves. They have also been accused of desecrating the grave of the city's chief rabbi and a Holocaust memorial monument.

Menahem Rabinowitz, envoy of the Jewish Agency in Nizhny Novgorod, told Ynet that the Jewish community in the city, which includes over 15,000 people, had been shocked by the affair. He said the cemetery was the oldest one in the area, and that the grave and the monument hold much significance for the community.

Disgusting. Not one of these hoodlums has been caught, yet. I have the feeling the violence against Jewish interests in Russia has yet to reach fever pitch. Incidents like this happen all too frequently and the powers that be seem to have no interest in prosecuting them.
