Desecrated Graves: Why Jews Can’t Find Rest

‘Barbaric’ acts of anti-Semitism again plague Europe.

BY JOSUE MICHELS

Dozens of Jewish graves in Europe have been desecrated this month. On Tuesday, December 17, local officials in Namestovo, Slovakia, reported the desecration of 59 Jewish graves. On December 4, reports referred to more than 100 desecrated graves in a small Alsatian village in France.

In the midst of surging anti-Semitism, it appears that hatred against Jews doesn’t even stop once they’re dead.

During World War II, some 105,000 Slovakian Jews were killed, reducing the country’s Jewish population by 77 percent. Today, only around 3,000 Jews live in Slovakia according to the World Jewish Congress. Slovakia’s Jewish community called the desecration of the 59 graves in Namestovo "an unprecedented barbaric act."
