University students in the Netherlands redecorated a Jewish classmate’s dorm room to look like a Nazi death camp, Dutch media reported according to JTA on Wednesday.
The incident, reported by Dutch daily Volksrant on Friday, involved members of Leiden University’s Minerva Society, Holland’s oldest student association.
As part of an apparent hazing ritual, several seniors redesigned the room of a freshman student living in university housing. That student is believed to be Jewish, the daily noted.
Volkskrant obtained a video of the room, which shows mass graves painted on the floor, barbed wire hanging from pipes and the German words “Arbeit macht frei” spray-painted on the room’s walls.
