Anti-Semitic Vandalism Reported at UGA Dorms

At least three times this semester, Jewish University of Georgia students have found anti-Semitic vandalism in their dorms.

Ariana Dinberg, a freshman, said the first incident happened in August. Dinberg said a poster with the letters of Sigma Delta Tau, the Jewish sorority on campus, was torn off her door. She said she reported the incident to her resident assistant.

“It already made me feel almost ashamed,” Dinberg told Flagpole. “But when this happened, I hated that people knew someone Jewish lived there based on my poster, and the reaction from whoever did this was immediate anti-Semitism.”

She said she chose to take down the poster instead of taping it back up so that another incident wouldn’t happen. However, Dinberg said the words “All Heil” with a swastika underneath were written on the white board outside her dorm in October. “I was shocked, but more hurt,” she said. “I know anti-Semitism has always existed around the world, but I also think it’s become more prevalent lately.”
