Jewish Graves Defaced in Hungary

Some 57 graves were vandalized at a Jewish cemetery in Hungary.

The vandalism occurred early Sunday morning at a Jewish cemetery in the southwest Hungarian town of Kaposvar, the French news agency AFP reported.

Kaposvar Mayor Karoly Szita told the Hungarian national MTI news agency that he was “upset and disgusted.”

Laszlo Rona, head of the association of Jewish communities in Kaposvar, told MTI that the vandalism was “clearly motivated by racism.”

Some 100,000 Jews live in Hungary, which has a total population of 10 million.
