Cemetery:

On Saturday, October 30th, 2004, 92 graves were discovered to be covered with anti-Semitic inscriptions, racist and neo-Nazi: notably acronyms "SS ", swastikas, and "death to the Jews " in the ancient part of the burying ground, which is about 1 km away from Brumath. The desecration was similar to that in Herrlisheim, where 127 graves of the Jewish cemetery had been spattered with pro-Nazi and anti-Semitic graffiti. The cemetery contains at least 200 graves.
