Swastikas defaced dozens of campaign posters in San Francisco's Richmond district.

The anti-Semitic symbols appeared on at least 50 posters for David Heller, who is Jewish and running for the Board of Supervisors in San Francisco. The beauty shop owner lost all of his relatives on his father's side to the Nazis.

Mr. Heller said, "I couldn't believe it. I couldn't handle it. I just broke down. I mean I cried. All day, I couldn't handle it. I couldn't believe it."

Heller used the colors of the Israeli flag for his posters. The Anti-Defamation League says references to Israel can set off anti-Semitic attacks.

On Wednesday, Heller's opponents in the supervisorís race stood hand-in-hand with him as a show of solidarity.
