Student disciplined for posting swastikas, photos of Hitler on dorm room door

UW-Madison has disciplined a student who posted several swastikas and photos of Adolf Hitler on the door of a Jewish student’s dorm room last month.

The incident happened in Sellery Hall on Jan. 26, and was meant to be a prank, Dean of Students Lori Berquam said. Berquam did not name the people involved, though she said the students all knew one another, and said federal law prohibits the university from saying what disciplinary sanctions the student who posted the photos received.

A Facebook post from Wednesday night shows the door to the room in Sellery Hall covered with five swastikas and three photos of Hitler.
