Schoolgirls reportedly shout “Hitler, Hitler” at Jewish couple leaving East London hospital
It has been reported that three schoolgirls shouted “Hitler, Hitler” at a Jewish couple leaving a hospital in East London.
The girls, described as being Black and around fourteen years of age, allegedly shouted the comments outside of The City Academy in Hackney.
The victims, a man and his pregnant wife, were leaving a hospital in Homerton following a maternity appointment.
The incident took place yesterday and was reported by Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol.
