MADISON (WKOW) — It’s the vandalism we’ve seen all too often around Madison. Spray painted swastikas on a memorial next to a Jewish synagogue in September. Then, this month swastikas were scratched into the hoods of several new vehicles in an east side dealership. Not to mention, there have been multiple instances of swastikas and other hateful messages that have popped up on the UW-Madison campus over the past few years.
“As a member of the Jewish community, seeing that act of vandalism and hatred was very difficult,” said sophomore Julia Brunson.
“When things like this happen, it’s a time for self reflection,” added senior Kyra Fox, who is Jewish and a Unitarian Universalist.
