Jewish cemetery in Belgrade vandalised in antisemitic attack

The Sephardic cemetery in Belgrade, capital of Serbia, has been vandalised in an antisemitic attack, the local Jewish community said.

Antisemitic graffiti were painted on the cemetery entrance reportedly by a group of ultra-right supporters of a Belgrade football club. The vandalism on the cemetery was reported to the authorities.

The Sephardic and Ashkenazi cemeteries in Belgrade are the only two Jewish graveyards still in use in Serbia.

In November 2021, the same cemetery was attacked when unidentified people smashed the windows and left an ax on the floor.
