3 swastikas found at Jewish fraternity house
Nashville, Tenn. — Vanderbilt University officials have launched a hate crime investigation after three swastikas were found spray-painted inside a Jewish fraternity house.
The Tennessean cited a statement that Provost Susan R. Wente sent to students Monday reporting that the graffiti was found Saturday after a party at the Alpha Epsilon Pi house.
Wente condemned use of the symbol, which she said is “associated with hate, anti-Semitism, violence, death, and murder.”
She said anyone with information about the swastikas should call Vanderbilt police.
