(JTA) — A professor at Syracuse University was threatened by an anonymous email containing anti-Semitic language and Holocaust references.

The email sent on Nov. 19 to Genevieve García de Müeller, a professor of writing, rhetoric and composition, the campus student newspaper, The Daily Orange, reported.

The subject line of the email was “JEW.” It told her to “get in the oven where you belong” and ended with an anti-Semitic slur, according to the newspaper, which did not disclose the slur.

Mueller is Jewish and Mexican.

She tweeted a screenshot of the email to the Syracuse Police Department.

A day later, a white supremacist manifesto was air-dropped to students’ cellphones at Syracuse’s Bird Library.

It is the 16th racist or bias-related incident reported on or near the campus since Nov. 7, according to The Daily Orange. Most of the incidents have been against black and Asian people

A week ago, the university cancelled all fraternity activities for the rest of this semester after racist activities were reported.
