Lighter Fluid Swastika Drawn Outside Human Rights Foundation
Police in Concord, New Hampshire, say someone used lighter fluid to form a swastika in the parking lot outside a human rights group that battles anti-Semitism.
The Lantos Foundation for Human Rights and Justice was named for Congressman Tom Lantos, the only Holocaust survivor elected to Congress. He died in 2008.
Police said the 6-by-6-foot swastika, discovered Wednesday, was never lighted, and the person who formed the symbol walked away.
Katrina Swett, Lantos' daughter, runs the foundation. She said it is a place where when anyone is targeted, it stands shoulder to shoulder and pushes back against it.
