Police identify minors suspected of vandalising synagogue in Romania
Police have identified minors who are suspected of vandalising a synagogue in Romania.
The Orăștie synagogue in southwestern Transylvania, which was built in the late 1800s, had its windows smashed, with rocks found inside the building. The suspects are believed to be between the ages of nine and fourteen.
The act of vandalism comes only days before the 80th anniversary of the Iași pogrom, a series of violent, murderous attacks that were carried out against Romanian Jews in Iași during the Holocaust. The killings lasted from 29th June until 6th July 1941 and over 13,000 Jews were murdered.
