The World Jewish Congress condemns the deplorable desecration of dozens of headstones at the Urmston Jewish Cemetery in England.

We trust that authorities will thoroughly and appropriately investigate whether this utterly disrespectful act was indeed a hate crime, and bring to justice those responsible.

The destruction of property, heritage, and places of mourning is a tragedy, and our thoughts are with the Jewish community of Manchester.
