Historical Notes

Tim Hindes is a graphic designer living in the Pittsburgh area. In the immediate aftermath of the October 27 attack, he designed a symbol integrating a Star of David into the Pittsburgh Steelers logo with the phrase "Stronger Than Hate." He shared the logo on his Facebook page, describing it as an "individual sharing of support." After he made the post public, the symbol and the phrase went viral, appearing on posters, t-shirts, and a wide variety of other objects. Hindes partnered with the Pittsburgh Steelers to oversee merchandising rights and monitor misuse, ultimately donating some $70,000 to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh's Victims of Terror Fund.
