- Antisemitic graffiti was found scrawled on a poster advertising an event sponsored by Hillel, the Jewish life organization at Emerson, on Oct. 14, college officials announced Monday evening.

The graffiti “mockingly invoked the Holocaust in relation to Jewish individuals or organizations,” according to a community-wide email from Interim President Bill Gilligan. The poster, which was promoting a “Yoga with Hillel” event, has since been removed from the elevator lobby in 2 Boylston Place where it was originally hung.

Those responsible for the antisemitic vandalism have yet to be identified, Gilligan said.
