A New York restaurant deliveryman was awarded $900,000 for enduring 16 years of anti-Semitic harassment by three supervisors.
A U.S. District Court jury in Brooklyn found in favor of Adam Wiercinski on Oct. 24 in four hours, the New York Post reported Monday.
Citing the lawsuit, the newspaper reported that one manager at the Mangia 57 restaurant in Manhattan would pass gas in front of Wiercinski and then joke that it was Zyklon B, which was used in the Nazi gas chambers.
Much of Wiercinski’s father’s family died at the hands of the Nazis, he told the Post.
