Volunteers have carried out a clean-up operation at the Jewish cemetery in Gyöngyös, Hungary, which recently was hit by an attack by vandals. The two-day operation, April 24-25 saw dozens of volunteers clearing vegetation and carrying out other work. The action was funded by a variety of Jewish organization as well as the town authorities.
Last month, vandals damaged about 20 graves in the cemetery, toppling stones, breaking into family tombs and even scattering remains. The fence around the cemetery was also damaged.
