Jewish students attacked at Auschwitz
While on a tour of the museum at the Auschwitz death camp in Poland on Sunday, a group of around 50 Jewish university students from Israel, the U.S. and Poland were verbally attacked by a three-member gang of French male tourists.
Evidently incited by the presence of an Israeli flag wrapped around the shoulders of Tamar Schuri, an Israeli student from Ben Gurion University, the first assailant ran at the group while its members were being guided through a model gas chamber and crematoria and began swearing and hurling anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli insults.
He told us to go back to Israel and said that we were stupid and should be ashamed to walk around with an Israeli flag, testifies Maya Ober, a 21-year-old Polish student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan and member of the Polish Union of Jewish Students (PUSZ), which organized the 16-day summer learning program along with the World Union of Jewish Students (WUJS).
After the initial altercation, a second assailant
grabbed Ober by the arm. One of the guys held me by the arm and wouldn't let go, says Ober, who lost several members of her family at Auschwitz. I was afraid. I could not move and I didn't know what he was going to do.
