BERLIN - Vandals plastered stickers commemorating Adolf Hitler's deputy, Rudolf Hess, on gravestones in a Jewish cemetery in western Germany, police said Monday.
The stickers, marking last week's anniversary of Hess' death, were attached to about 50 gravestones at the cemetery in the industrial city of Bochum, city police said. They were discovered by a police patrol Monday morning.
Hess hanged himself at age 93 in Spandau Prison in then-West Berlin on Aug. 17, 1987 after nearly 41 years as a prisoner. On Saturday, some 3,800 neo-Nazis gathered for an annual march in his memory in Wunsiedel, the southern town where he is buried.
