A Jewish woman from Crown Heights is advising residents to be careful and exercise caution when walking in the Crown Heights neighborhood today.
“I just want to warn everyone to be careful,” the 27-year-old woman told COLlive.
“I was just walking on Kingston and Empire when a group of women who were coming from the direction of the Caribbean Day Parade screamed out, ‘Hitler’ at me as I passed by.
The Jewish woman, who was walking alone, says she told the women, “that’s not ok,” and they began to shout at her, “It’s good Hitler killed the Jews!”
“I am completely shocked by this unacceptable behavior,” the woman told COLlive.
The Jewish woman reported that it was 3 younger black women who shouted at her, but said that, “I believe one of their mothers actually did apologize.”
“Still I just want the community to be vigilant,” she says.
