      Holocaust Memorial Desecrated on Anniversary of Kristallnacht


      Unidentified persons, expected to be Neo-Nazi vandals, uprooted 11 memorial plaques commemorating Jewish Nazi victims in the German city of Greifswald on Friday, the 74th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Die Welt newspaper reported. The plaques were part of the Stolpersteine, meaning “stumbling blocks”, project by German artist Gunter Demnig, memorializing victims of the Nazi regime throughout Europe.
