Indiana Holocaust Museum Hit by Arson, Graffiti

A small Indiana museum dedicated to victims of the Nazi Holocaust was set ablaze on Tuesday in a likely arson attack that included a spray-painted homage to Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh. “We are calling this a probable arson,” Terre Haute Assistant Fire Chief Skip Allenbaugh said of the single-story brick structure, which had part of its roof cave in. A side door was forced open and an unidentified accelerant was used to start the blaze, Allenbaugh said. Inside were charred books and pamphlets, twisted metal chairs and ruined artifacts in smashed glass display cases. Police had made no arrests for the arson though the director of the museum, Mary Wright, said a witness was providing information about a possible suspect or suspects. The words “Remember Timmy McVeigh” were spray-painted in black on an outside wall, and the message was there when firefighters arrived and assumed to be the work of the person or persons who set the fire.
