Kent State, Forty Years Later

Three of four victims were Jews

Print Email
Famous photo from that day. The dead student is Jeffrey Miller, who was Jewish.(Forward)

On May 4, 1970, four unarmed students at Vietnam War protests at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, were killed by National Guardsmen. The Forward helpfully reminds us that three of these four were Jewish.

Incidentally, two of the victims (one of them Jewish) were not actually protesters; they were bystanders. Those were slightly crazy times.
