Dozens of swastikas and pro-Nazi slurs were spray-painted at a Jewish school play-yard in Rego Park, Queens on Friday, Ynet reported.
School staff rushed to the scene to clean it and New York Police forces arrived on the scene to investigate. The school was not working as usual but the playground was open to the public.
Vice-CEO of the American Jewish Congress Assaf Weiss said that months after the October Etz Chaim Synagogue shooting that claimed the lives of 11 Jewish worshipers "we once again see worrying antisemitic incidents in Jewish neighborhoods in NYC, the city with the largest Jewish community in the US."
Rego Park Queens is featured in the ground-braking graphic novel 'Maus' by Art Spiegelman about his father, who was a Holocaust survivor.
Following the slurs, Congressman Grace Meng, who represents the Queens district, said she was “outraged and sickened” by the news and called on local authorities to bring those responsible to “swift justice.”
