A police spokesman for the city of Ulm in southern Germany said on Wednesday that the police are conducting a wide-ranging investigation into three attacks on the city’s synagogue since late August and antisemitism may be the motive for the crimes.
Uwe Krause, the police spokesman, told The Jerusalem Post that the authorities “can’t rule out” antisemitism as the reason for the attacks on the synagogue, causing thousand of euros in damage to the building’s structure.
On September 4, a man kicked a hole in the wall of the Ulm synagogue. The suspect, who was with six young men and has not been caught, smashed his foot against the synagogue earlier in the night and returned later for a second attack that severely damaged the wall.
On August 26, a man demolished the facade of a synagogue wall with a metal post. The police believe the same man conducted both the August and September attacks.
