Decal sticker featuring "Stronger Than Hate" symbol with yellow border and the words Pittsburgh Police beneath the City of Pittsburgh crest.
Following the October 27 attack, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Steelers commissioned special decals for patrol cards in Zone 4, which covers the neighborhoods of Squirrel Hill, Shadyside, and Greenfield. The design of the decal combines the imagery of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police badge with the Stronger Than Hate symbol. Zone 4 was the first law enforcement agency to arrive at the Tree of Life synagogue building on October 27, 2018, and four of its officers were injured in the attack. The decal is believed to be the first time a Star of David has appeared on a police vehicle outside the State of Israel.
The October 27 Archive collects responses to an antisemitic attack in Pittsburgh, Pa. on October 27, 2018. These responses take many forms but share a motivating impulse. Each began in the mind and heart of someone who was moved by the events of that day and was compelled to create something meaningful from that feeling. By sharing these responses, those people chose to be vulnerable for the sake of a greater good. The October 27 Archive website was launched with the belief that sharing these responses with the world can provide an avenue for people all over the world to reflect, learn, and heal.
By entering this website, you agree to honor the spirit in which these responses were created and in which they are being shared with the world.
