“We are horrified that hackers have targeted a Jewish school and exposed children to horrific Nazi imagery and messages,” said Liora Rez, director of StopAntisemitism.org.
“Many of these teens are descendants of Holocaust survivors, and generational trauma is often triggered when events like these occur.”
To make matters worse, the personal information of students and teachers at the academy, including names, addresses, and credit card data, was also compromised and leaked online by the hackers.
By Monday afternoon, the school's website had been taken down, with the only remaining visible content being a message reading, “Under construction. Please check back soon.”Also on rt.com Jewish group slams Georgia Democrat Senate candidates for campaigning with lawmaker who allegedly compared Jews to ‘TERMITES’
