Kristallnacht remnants unearthed near Berlin

A huge dumping ground for the destroyed remains of Jewish property plundered during Kristallnacht has been found in Brandenburg north of Berlin by Yaron Svoray, an investigative journalist. The site, the size of four football pitches, contains an extensive array of personal and ceremonial items looted during orchestrated nationwide riots against Jewish property and places of worship on the night of November 9 1938. Svoray is worried about making his find public because the site might attract far-right treasure hunters. "There's no treasure as such here, but there's still the danger of it turning into some skinhead circus eBay special," he said, urging the government to secure the site.
