An unspecified number of men in Orthodox Jewish garb handed out flyers on Nov. 1 in a Boulder, Colo. mall saying that it’s “statistically impossible” for six million Jews to have died during the Holocaust, Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports.

They also handed out index cards saying, “Jews run the porn industry,” “Jews ran the Atlantic Slave Trade” and “academia is dominated by Marxist Jews.”

Boulder police told the Daily Camera that they didn’t receive any complaints about the flyers.

Anti-Defamation League (ADL) Mountain States tweeted, “We are disgusted and enraged that these white supremacists would spew such vile lies and mock Jews by dressing in fake attire. It is important to speak loudly and clearly that hate in all of its forms will not be tolerated in our communities.”

The Denver Post reported in May that Colorado has seen “the highest totals” of anti-Semitic incidents in 2016-2018 “in more than 12 years,” according to ADL data. However, the number of anti-Semitic incidents did decline from 57 in 2017 to 39 in 2018.

ADL Mountain States Regional Director Scott Levin told the Post at the time, “Unfortunately, it’s a time of a great deal of fear and insecurity in faith-based institutions.”
