The Durban Diaries

By Joëlle Fiss

American Jewish Committee (AJC), European Union of Jewish Students, October 2008

This diary documents the experience of young Jews who attended the World Conference against Racism in Durban, South Africa in 2001. The students were subjected to surprisingly strong anti-Semitic and anti-Israel sentiments. The author of the diary concludes with the assertion that anti-Semitism can still openly occur especially in situations where it is unexpected.
