The New York Sun is reporting that a swastika was found painted on the door of Elizabeth Midlarsky, a Jewish Teachers College professor who studies the Holocaust. TC President Susan Fuhrman responded to the incident in an email send out to the TC community this morning:
“We feel we’ve been targeted precisely because Teachers College is and historically has been a center for deep multi-cultural work. We are committed to maintaining that tradition by operating as an open, tolerant community.”
Police received a call at 8am and are considering this a possible bias incident.
UPDATE, 12:00 midnight: You think we have problems? George Washington’s got seven.
