Nazi items trashed at Holocaust exhibit (NY)





Vandals pilfered and damaged Nazi related materials at a Suffolk County Community College exhibit about the Holocaust, police said Thursday.

Photographs of a propaganda poster and Adolf Hitler's autobiographical book "Mein Kampf" were damaged, police said.

The exhibit included anti-Semitic propaganda from the Third Reich, including caricatures of Jews, newspaper pages and other materials, political science Prof. Steven Schrier said.

Schrier runs the college's Center on the Holocaust, Diversity & Human Understanding, which maintained the exhibit.

The vandals took some items from a display case Tuesday night and stepped on them or smashed them against a rock, Suffolk County Police Detective Sgt. Robert Reeks said. The vandals targeted materials related to Nazis but left others undisturbed, he said.
