Messages Praising Hitler and Inciting Violence Against Jews Found on NYC Subway

Messages praising Adolf Hitler and calling for the extermination of Jewish people were found scrawled on a Q train in New York City over the weekend, according to images shared on social media.

“Adolf you was right,” read one of the hateful missives written in black pen on a subway seat, as seen in a photo posted on X Sunday by the non-partisan watchdog organization StopAntisemitism.

The antisemitic graffiti was accompanied by a symbol that appeared to combine a swastika with the letter “Z,” which has come to be associated with Russia’s war in Ukraine.

A second message written on another seat said: “Gas the Jews.”

StopAntisemitism said the vile missives were spotted Saturday on a subway running on the Q line, but it did not provide any additional details.

“The handwriting appears to be from a female with a Cyrillic language background such as Russian,” speculated the watchdog organization, without providing any evidence supporting that claim.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), via its X account NYCT Subway, immediately replied to the post, asking StopAntisemitism to provide the 4-digit train car number “so that we can have this hateful and vile messaging addressed.”

In response to a request from The Post seeking comment on the incident Monday, an MTA representative said that the watchdog did not provide the information on the subway car — but cleaners and supervisors were alerted to be on the lookout for the defaced seats.

“Acts of vandalism like this are offensive and unacceptable, and any such messages placed within the transit system would be subject to immediate removal when reported or observed by a transit employee,” MTA spokesperson Meghan Keegan said in a statement.
