Holocaust Museum Burned, Items Ruined
A small Indiana museum dedicated to victims of the Nazi Holocaust was set ablaze and its contents destroyed in a likely arson attack that included a spray-painted homage to Oklahoma City bomber Timothy J. McVeigh, who held white supremacist and anti-government views.
“We are calling this a probable arson,” Terre Haute Assistant Fire Chief Skip Allenbaugh said of the single-story brick structure. The blaze caused part of the structure’s roof to cave in.
The museum’s director valued its contents at about $15,000. No arrests have been made.
