Over 100 Swastika Leaflets Dropped at Va.Tech; Left on Front Yard of the Jewish Student Center

More than 100 leaflets with hand-drawn swastikas were found dropped on the front yard of the Chabad Jewish student center at Virginia Tech University, the JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency) website reports today (March 20, 2017).

The leaflets were discovered at the student center located across the street from the main campus in Blacksburg, Virginia, on March 18 by the Chabad's center co-director, Rabbi Zvi Yaakov Zwiebel.

The anti-Semitic incident occurred a day after the Jewish student center announced that Chabad was hosting the renowned Holocaust survivor Rabbi Nissen Mangel for a lecture at Virginia Tech in April.

The lecture program is to honor Professor Liviu Librescu, a Holocaust survivor who was among the 32 people killed in the 2007 shootings on campus. Librescu blocked the door of his classroom so students could escape by jumping out of windows.
