Weiterstadt– Unknown persons, probably affiliated with the Extreme Right, broke windows of the town hall building in Seeheim-Jugenheim in South Hesse using stepping stones. According to the police, the incident occurred on the night between Thursday and Friday. The brass stones that commemorate the home addresses of Nazi victims were stolen about a year ago in the city of Griesheim, which is only 20 kilometers away.


The investigators do not have information regarding the perpetrators. They suspect that they are people associated with the Extreme Right.


The police are checking whether there is a connection to the theft of seven stepping stones on Thursday night in the city of Weiterstadt. These stones had just been laid on Wednesday and were memorial stones to the families Hirsch and Kolin-Khan that were murdered in the Holocaust. On Thursday night seven of them were stolen. The police have launched an investigation.
