A Jewish cemetery in Germany was desecrated for the third time in three months, according to a UK project that cited the German newspaper Hannoversche Allgemeine.

The project — #Everyday Antisemitism — part of the UK’s Campaign Against Antisemitism, reported on Friday that unknown perpetrators ripped out two Jewish gravestones at the cemetery in Hannover and smashed a window adjacent to a sermon hall. The month before, in December, gravestones were also pulled out and desecrated. In November, vandals spray-painted a grave with a swastika and broke the glass windows of the sermon hall.

Hannoversche Allgemeine quoted Hanover Jewish community chairman Michael Prince, who called for tighter security measures at the cemetery to ensure that a similar incident does not occur in the future.
