Nazi-like graffiti found at Jewish summer camp on Gabriola Island


Gabriola Island, Gabriola, BC - A leader in Vancouver’s Jewish community says he’s shocked and saddened after the discovery of Nazi-like graffiti at a Jewish Summer Camp on Gabriola Island.

In the midst of a rise in attacks on the Jewish Community around New York, a caretaker at Camp Miriam discovered swastikas and lewd images spray-painted on some of the buildings on Dec. 17.

CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver Ezra Shanken says the fact this happened in a small community like Gabriola island is telling of the discrimination Jewish people often face.

“It’s almost like no corner of the globe is immune. We’re talking about a camp sitting on an island in the Strait that has not so many people on it,” he tells NEWS 1130.
