Woman Finds Swastika on Her Door, Fights Back With Dumbledore
A woman in Michigan came home last week to find a swastika painted on her door. Instead of despairing, she decided to fight back – with love and magic lifted from the pages of a beloved Harry Potter book.
Last week, Erin Zettle posted a public message on Facebook describing the hateful attack.
“There was fear and rage and disbelief, while I wondered who could have done it and do they know me and was it religious or political or just nasty?,” she wrote, adding “And I cried, and cried.”
After Zettle calmed down, she decided that she wouldn’t judge her community “based on the worst of actions.”
But she did want people to know about it – so she decided to leave the symbol up and not remove it.
