Over 80 tombstones were vandalized in a Jewish cemetery dating back to 1807 in Randers, a Danish town in Jutland. The local newspaper reported it Randers Amtsavis. The tombstones have been painted with green graffiti and some have been overturned. Police investigations are underway. We have one of the oldest Jewish burial sites and we will always keep it, denounced the mayor of the town Torben Hansen. On one of the gravestones a yellow sticker with the star of David and the writing Jude was also glued. It is not clear when the act of anti-Semitic vandalism took place but, the Danish daily stresses, the coincidence with the 81st anniversary of the Crystal Night in Germany does not seem entirely coincidental, when between 9 and 10 November 1938 hundreds of citizens Jews were killed by the Nazis and synagogues, cemeteries, shops and houses were destroyed.
