Quatzenheim – Swastikas and antisemitic tags were found daubed 96 gravestones at a Jewish cemetery in eastern France on Tuesday on the day of nationwide marches against a rise in antisemitic attacks.

The damage was discovered on Tuesday morning at a cemetery in the village of Quatzenheim, close to the border with Germany in the Alsace region, a statement from the regional security office said.

According to authorities 96 graves in total were vandalised with antisemitic graffiti and swastika symbols.

Local MP Sylvain Waserman said he was left “disgusted” and “furious” after hearing of the vandalism.
