Guben – At the Jewish cemetery in Guben (Spree-Neisse), unknown persons knocked over three gravestones on Monday night. Two stones were completely overturned, it said. The crown of the grave had been pushed off the foundation by a third person. The stones remained undamaged so that they can be set up again, says the cemetery attendant and former pastor of the Protestant community, Michael Domke.
After the incident, state security took over the investigation, the police said in Cottbus on Tuesday. Investigations will be carried out in all directions after forensic scientists have examined the crime scene.
