Ohio’s Hebrew Union College hit by swastika-painting vandals

Per local reports:

Someone painted a white swastika on a campus sign, likely late Monday or early Tuesday. Ronald Regula, the college’s director of operations, reported it to Cincinnati police at about 10:15 a.m. Tuesday.

The mark of the Nazi beast was painted on a sign at the school that reads in part “Jewish Institute of Religion.”

The campus has had the graffiti removed. The rabbi commenting for the college is the grandson of a Jewish couple who died in the Holocaust.

In other graffiti painting news, the gravestone of a Jewish couple in Indiana also got the swastika treatment this week. Three arrests have been made in that case.
