“Hitler is Coming” was written on a Post-it note and placed on a billboard display in front of the museum, that invites visitors to describe how they would change the world. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday that he had directed the State Police Hate Crimes Task Force to assist the NYPD’s investigation. “It’s part of a very troubling pattern that we’re seeing. Increased anti-Semitic attacks all across this country and all across this state,” he said. „These are hate crimes. We will prosecute the person to the fullest extent of the law, I promise you.” The billboard display is designed as a place where children are encouraged to “write acts of goodness and kindness.”

Other attacks against Jews in the city this year. In February, two swastikas written in black marker were found in a Brooklyn elementary schoolyard, as an example. The number of hate crimes reported to the New York Police Department this year is nearly double the number reported in 2018 during the same period, and most incidents are anti-Semitic. They are to 103 from 50 reported incidents in the same period last year. The Jewish Children’s Museum is the largest Jewish-themed children’s museum in the United States. It aims for children of all faiths and backgrounds to gain a positive perspective and awareness of the Jewish heritage. The museum won the Building Brooklyn Award in 2006 for its design and social impact on the greater Brooklyn community.
