Swastika Removed From Nebraska Park
OMAHA, NE – August 2, 2018
Someone burned a swastika on the grass of Memorial Park in Omaha, Nebraska, back on July 21, and the sign was only removed yesterday, local media reports.
Brook Bench, Omaha’s parks director, thanked the Home Company and Terry McGovern Construction on Twitter “for their generous donation of sod to cover the vandalism that occurred at Memorial Park.”
Last week, Bench received an offer to sod the roughly 20-foot-by-20-foot area. The work was completed Wednesday morning.
“The stars aligned this morning,” Bench said. “It was a very kind and generous offer, and we took it.”
