Alaska museums condemn antisemitic vandalism in Anchorage

    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Officials at museums across Alaska have condemned repeated acts of antisemitic vandalism this year targeting the Alaska Jewish Museum in Anchorage.

    The Juneau Empire reports that in May and September, someone placed swastika stickers on the building or carved the symbol associated with the Nazis in Germany into the museum.

    Dixie Clough is director of Museums Alaska, a statewide museum association.

    She said in a statement that Alaska museums are “appalled by the attacks” and eager to show support for the Alaska Jewish Museum and the Alaska Jewish Campus.
