Vandalism at Bach’s church in Leipzig

A New Year’s Eve act of vandalism at the Thomaskirche (St. Thomas Church) in Leipzig, Germany, where Johann Sebastian Bach served as cantor in the early 18th century, has destroyed two stained-glass windows and more than 20 art-nouveau panels. It was the second attack on the church during the holiday season, Leipzig police tell the Deutsche Welle news service:
