'Hitler Is Coming' Note Posted At Jewish Children's Museum

A Post-It note reading “Hitler Is Coming” was plastered onto a billboard designed for visitors to leave positive messages at the Jewish Children’s Museum in Crown Heights on Tuesday night.

The disturbing anti-Semitic display in an area where children congregate has many in the neighborhood rattled and angry, reports CBSN New York’s Scott Rapoport.

Devorah Halberstam, the museum’s co-founder who’s son was killed in a terrorist attack on the Brooklyn Bridge in 1994, is appalled.

“It’s extremely, extremely horrible,” she said. “It’s devastating to the museum I represent.”

2. Some people have no purpose, unless

they have others to hate. There is no room here for such hatred. Sniveling coward leaves a note? Be a man, stand up for what you believe, and face real people. Why must some people spread their bigotry, and upset others who are simply living their lives? In a children's museum of all places. Afraid of adults, no doubt.

4. Glad you posted this

This sneaky shit that happens DAILY in America needs to be documented. Americans who are Jewish are not getting the "cell phone recordable" hate incidents.

All of these "small acts" are adding up very quickly. However, they aren't going viral.

I want the candidates in this year's state elections (NJ) and next year's Federal Elections to address this.

7. Thank you.

I know you appreciate the severity of such acts. While this may be minor in some respects, it does add to the rising attack on Jewish people. You are also correct about "small acts" needing to be recognized, because they are showing a disturbing trajectory. Anti-Semitism, like any form of bigotry, no matter how small, needs to be documented and brought out into the bright light of day.
