Over a period of one year between September 2021 and September 2022, gravestones were desecrated at the Jewish cemetery in Heiligenstadt in the Bamberg district. Previously unknown perpetrators tore five gravestones out of the ground and violently knocked them over. They also removed trail markings. On 30.08.22 the police Bamberg-Land was specifically informed that gravestones were damaged again. A politically motivated act is not excluded by the Bamberg Criminal Police, which is why further investigations are being initiated.
