"Hitler attempted to eradicate the Jews from the earth. His Nazis slaughtered 6 million Jews," Deutch said. "This vile antisemitism must be universally condemned. And the cowards spreading this hate must be held accountable."

Boca Raton Mayor Scott Singer also expressed outrage. He tweeted on Wednesday: “Angry that this AM a cowardly hatemonger left anti-Semitic and pro-Hitler flyers in driveways at homes on four streets in our city. We fully condemn this vile hate. Boca PD investigating. Unusual here; unacceptable anywhere. We stand strong and united against all bigotry and anti-Semitism.”

The incident occurred on the Nazi dictator's birthday, April 20.
