(JNS) A Jewish cemetery in the northern Denmark town of Aalborg was vandalized over the Passover holiday. Red paint was thrown on a wall and dolls with red paint on them, along with leaflets calling it a holiday of carnage, were found on the grounds.

The leaflets included a link to a website for Nordfront, which, according to the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement, “promotes the Nordic Resistance Movement.”

“What has happened, vandalism in the cemetery around Easter, is simply so classic anti-Semitism as it may be. We have seen this for centuries in Europe,” Henri Goldstein, chairman of the Jewish Society in Denmark told a local news website, according to an English translation. “You can see that those in Aalborg write on their flyers that the Jewish Passover bread is mixed with blood from Christians. It’s completely insane, and a classic conspiracy theory.”
