asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will make a statement concerning the desecration of the Jewish cemetery at Wuerseren-Morbach, near Aachen.

The Jewish Cemetery at Wuerseren-Morbach is in an area badly devastated by battle. There is no indication that this cemetery is in a worse condition than others in the district, most of which have suffered damage. Damage to walls makes it difficult to prevent children from playing there, but the cemetery is under normal police protection. The leader of the local Jewish Gemeinde agrees that there is no evidence of organised desecration.
