The University of Wisconsin-Madison is responding to a swastika incident in a student dormitory by hosting a campus-wide forum on anti-Semitism.
On Jan. 26, Nazi swastikas and pictures of Adolf Hitler were posted on a Jewish student’s dorm room at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The Jewish student, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, described the incident as an “insensitive joke/prank gone wrong” and said the perpetrator was “not cognizant” of how offensive such an action was.
In response, the university is holding a Town Hall on Anti-Semitism this week. Greg Steinberger, executive director of the University of Wisconsin Hillel, told the newspaper the college is responding appropriately.
