A Jewish researcher at New York’s Columbia University discovered some rather disturbing graffiti in her office this Wednesday.

Professor Elizabeth Midlarsky found swastikas and anti-Semitic text — such as the word, “YID” — painted on the walls of her office.


Midlarsky, age 77, who is not in the best of health, still conducts research into the history of the Holocaust and publishes on the subject.

This is not the first time she has been the target of anti-Semitic vandalism.

Eleven years ago, Midlarsky found swastikas spray-painted on her office walls alongside her name, and anti-Semitic flyers left in her mailbox.

But entry to the school requires one to show an ID.

Thus far, no suspects have been been identified.
