Swastikas Discovered in New York High School

Antisemitism is on the rise around the county and the Hudson Valley is not immune to it.

At Rhinebeck High School, students drew two swastikas on a wall in chalk recently, something Principal Ed Davenport found very disturbing. 

It is not the first time antisemitism reared its ugly head in Rhinebeck schools. Davenport remembers an incident of ant-Jewish speech about three years ago. And that is when the district created am anti-hate committee.

Davenport said the district must continue education about the Holocaust and antisemitism through history and today.
