Report: Ukrainians Looting Holocaust Mass Graves

from the Jerusalem Post:

Ukrainian businessmen in the US and Europe are appealing to Jewish communities across the world to help put a stop to the looting of mass graves of Holocaust victims in Ukraine.

In recent years dozens of incidents have been recorded on the outskirts of cities such as Zhytomyr and Berdychiv. Thieves have dug up the graves of Jews murdered in the Holocaust in search of gold, teeth, jewelry and children’s skulls. The latter have been found at markets in town and cities, according to a statement released on Thursday by the European and Americans forums of Russian-speaking Jews.

The groups have for the past few years been invested in protecting and strengthening mass graves in Ukraine to prevent desecration and theft.
