Autistic Jewish Student Sent Home with Swastika Carved into Back on Holocaust Remembrance Day

Over the past few months, there have been multiple incidents involving antisemitic slurs directed toward young students, including graffiti of swastikas, mocking gestures, and verbal abuse. In at least one instance, the abuse escalated to physical violence.

The Israeli-American Council (IAC) recently reported an increase in the number of complaints from Israeli-American students regarding antisemitic incidents in schools throughout the United States.

Following the IAC’s intervention, the FBI is currently investigating a suspected hate crime against a visibly Jewish 17-year-old boy on the autistic spectrum who was found with a swastika carved on his back after returning from public school in the Las Vegas area.
