'Nazi-themed posters' found at SUNY Purchase College; governor 'disgusted'

HARRISON - Police are investigating "Nazi-themed posters" that were found on the campus of SUNY Purchase College on Sunday, the school said.

University police, who are working with the Westchester County District Attorney's Office, have identified a suspect who is believed to be responsible for posters found in various spots on the campus at 735 Anderson Hill Road in Harrison, the college said in a statement today.

The posters apparently had images of Hitler, as well as a swastika, Purchase spokeswoman Betsy Aldredge said.

"That this hateful act took place on the last night of Hanukkah when our Jewish community members were celebrating the survival of their religion, makes it even more reprehensible," Dennis Craig, Purchase's officer in charge and vice president for student affairs and enrollment management, said in a statement. "Please know that these posters, and any message of anti-Semitism and intolerance, go against our core values of diversity, acceptance and understanding."
