At about eleven o’clock, the witnesses at Müggelbergplatz noticed that the memorial stone, reminiscent of Nazi opponent Werner Sylten, was smeared with a viscous, foul-smelling, blue liquid. Traces were secured, a specialist commission of the police state security at the state criminal police has taken over the further investigations.

Werner Sylten was a Jewish theologian and educator who was persecuted and murdered by National Socialists.
