Man Shouts ‘Heil Hitler, Heil Trump’ At Theater Performance In Baltimore

During intermission at a performance of “Fiddler on the Roof,” a man started shouting “Heil Hitler, Heil Trump” sending some audience members fleeing out of fear that he’d start shooting.

According to a Thursday Baltimore Sun report, the shouting man, still unidentified, was escorted out of the building and the play continued.

“Fiddler on the Roof” is based on Yiddish stories and tells the tale of a Jewish family in Russia during the early 1900s.

The incident comes on the heels of October’s massacre at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh and a general upswing of anti-Semitic crimes.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
