2 swastikas drawn on apartment of elderly Jewish woman in Brooklyn


(JTA) — Two foot-long swastikas were drawn outside the apartment door of an elderly Jewish woman in Brooklyn.

Miryam Marc, 77, said her late husband was a Holocaust survivor, and she escaped from Europe to Israel during the Holocaust.

The large swastikas were drawn in red marker on either side of Marc’s door on Saturday afternoon, WCBS-TV reported.

The apartment building installed security cameras after the incident.

“Now I am very, very, very depressed and I am scared even in the night. I cannot sleep,” Marc told WCBS.

The New York Police Department’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the vandalism. There are no suspects.
