Anti-Semitic Flyers Found on University of Rochester Campus
The University of Rochester on Monday saw a mysterious appearance of dozens of anti-semitic flyers at its Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies.
The posting of flyers comes a week after the deadly shooting at a Pittsburg Synagogue that led to the killing 11 and wounded six others.
According to a WHAM-TV report, the university has taken a strong note of the incident and has joined an investigation with the local law enforcement agency.
“Anti-Semitic messages were faxed to a small number of University departments on Monday, Nov. 5,” University wrote in an email to the community members.
“These messages are reprehensible and cowardly, and they are contrary to the University’s values. The University Department of Public Safety is working with law enforcement to actively investigate this incident.”
Pertinently, in recent weeks, various college and university campuses across the country have seen a rise in posting of flyers emphasizing “white supremacist ideology.”
In the last two weeks, the flyers appeared at the University of Denver, University of Vermont and Champlain College.
