Officials: Swastikas found at UConn on Passover

UConn is investigating after antisemitic graffiti was found during Passover, officials said.

On Saturday, the first day of Passover, a passerby informed university officials that a swastika had been spray painted on the side of the chemistry building at UConn’s Storrs campus.

A few days later, another swastika was found spray painted on the campus’ Philip E. Austin Building, officials said.

“The UConn community has witnessed a disturbing increase in antisemitic incidents this academic year,” the university’s chapter of Hillel, a Jewish organization, said in a statement. “Since the beginning of Pesach [Passover] alone, there have been reports of swastikas and ‘SS’ graffiti on two academic buildings near Hillel as well as verbal harassment of a Jewish student.”

1. Just seems to me if there were a group one really hates, one might ignore that group ...

... deprive them of the gift of one's attention.
