Cincinnati, OH – Business owners in Northside are trying to find the person responsible for distributing antisemitic flyers in their community this weekend.
Terry Donald, co-owner of Castaways Recycled Style on Hamilton Avenue, said a woman dropped off the fliers on Saturday, saying she was doing some “political activism.”
Donald said he and his wife spoke to the business owner next door, who had also received the anti-Jewish propaganda.
The fliers spread misinformation about Jewish people.
Donald said it was not a message he expected to see in his community.
“I’ve heard of this happening before,” Donald said. “I’m kind of surprised it happened here in Northside. We’re a very diverse, very friendly community. I just hope that somebody’s not trying to recruit people for some kind of organization. It’s the last thing we need in Northside and it’s the last thing we need in Cincinnati.”
This is the second time in less than a month that businesses in Cincinnati have been given antisemitic messages. The latest time happened back in February in College Hill.
