Thu Nov 29 2018
A Jewish professor's office at Columbia Teachers College was vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti, including swastikas and an anti-Semitic slur.
Elizabeth Midlarsky, a professor of psychology and education who researches the Holocaust, said she arrived at work at around 1 p.m. today and found large swastikas scrawled on the walls just outside her office. The word "YID" was also spray-painted on a wall.
“I was in a state of shock,” she said, adding that she’s an organ donor recipient who’s been dealing with health issues.
This is not the first time Midlarsky's office was vandalized. In 2007, she discovered a swastika spray-painted on her office door, as well as anti-Semitic flyers in her mailbox....
