Swastika-emblazoned leaflets littered on Jewish Student Center's front yard

Blacksburg, VA - Leaflets with hand-drawn swastikas were found strewn across the lawn of the Chabad Librescu Jewish Student Center at Virginia Tech.

 

Rabbi Zvi Zweibel, the center's co-director, said he was shocked Saturday afternoon to discover about 100 leaflets scattered in front of the Chabad House, located just off campus on Wall Street.

 

The incident came a day after the center announced it would bring Holocaust survivor Rabbi Nissen Mangel to campus for an event April 24. The event is meant to honor professor Liviu Librescu, a Holocaust survivor killed in the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007, when he blocked the door of his classroom so students could escape.
