(Scroll down for video) A kosher meat shop owner was horrified to find large red swastikas painted on his store front window in Pennsylvania.

Simon Rachshtut, the owner of Simon’s Glatt Kosher Meat Products, arrived at his Northeast Philadelphia shop on Thursday morning, to find the hate symbols painted on the windows.

The swastikas were also painted on the back wall of the store. Police said that they have launched an investigation, but so far, no arrests have been made.

The Rachshtut family fled Ukraine, ahead of the Nazi invasion in 1941. Rachshtut said that he cannot believe that such things are happening in the United States.

Fortunately, the paint used was water soluble, and it easily washed off from the windows and walls.
