Hamina - Gravestones were desecrated in the Jewish cemetery in the Hamina in Finland. 

Hamina is located in the south of the country and near the Baltic Sea, a city about 150 km east of Helsinki. The antisemitic incident occurred during the past night, with tombstones desecrated and swastikas and antisemitic graffiti sprayed on the scene. 

These are tombstones from the beginning of the last century. Jewish soldiers who served in the Czar's army before Finland gained independence in 1917, and passed away - were buried in the cemetery. Last night, some of the headstones were vandalized.
