ALGOMA, WI (WTAQ) - A $1,500 reward is being offered to find those who recently put up six anti-Semitic signs in Algoma.
The Anti-Defamation League offered the reward, as the FBI and local police investigate the matter as a hate crime.
Elana Kahn-Oren of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation tells Wisconsin Public Radio that the signs appeared in late July and were quickly taken down. She said the signs had messages like, “Jew go back where you came from” and “Kill the Jews, Keep Algoma clean.”
Local officials issued a statement that Algoma would not tolerate signs which are discriminatory or threatening.
