Breaking: JS Bach church is vandalised, 25 windows smashedmain
Police in Leipzig have announced that 25 stained-glass windows were destroyed in a New Year’s Eve act of vandalism in St Thomas’s Church and neighboring Thomashaus.
Pastor Britta Taddiken said stones were thrown at the windows from outside the church, where Johann Sebastian Bach presented some of his greatest works, and where his remains are buried.
There have been no arrests. Suspicion has fallen on a mentally ill person who recently spoke to the pastor.
