On October 31, 2004 Ha-Aretz reported, "Nearly 100 graves were desecrated at a Jewish cemetery near the eastern city of Strasbourg, local authorities said yesterday.

The perpetrators painted tombstones with anti-Semitic and Nazi inscriptions in an attack that appeared to have taken place on Friday night at Brumath, 15 kilometers north of Strasbourg, the local government prefect's office said.

It was the third such attack in six months. There have also been similar attacks on Muslim burial sites in the Alsace region that borders Germany."
