Belgrade Jewish cemetery attacked

Jewish leaders across Europe have condemned the vandalism of
a building belonging to the Jewish cemetery in the Serbian capital of Belgrade last week.

An axe was found on the floor beside shattered glass in an incident raised with Serbian Minister of Internal Affairs Aleksandar Vulin.

European Jewish Association chair Rabbi Menachem Margolin said there needed to be “a full investigation and condemnation, lest it give antisemites the impression that it is open season on Jewish buildings in the country”.

He added that “whoever is responsible has no respect for the dead, never mind the living… We extend our support to our Jewish brothers and sisters in Belgrade and Serbia as a whole, who must be reeling at this attack and feeling vulnerable”.
