California Everyday Antisemitism Verbal Abuse Ξ E-mail

Man shouts at Jews on Los Angeles street: “Go back to Auschwitz, you filthy Jews!”

A Jewish woman living in Los Angeles sent in the following report:

On Friday night, after attending a Shabbat dinner, I was walking home westward on Pico Boulevard. The Pico-Robertson neighbourhood in Los Angeles has a large Jewish presence, with many synagogues and kosher restaurants. I ran into some friends after crossing Livonia, and we stopped to chat. As we stood there talking, a man who appeared to be white drove by in a Jeep. He leaned out the window and yelled, “Go back to Auschwitz, you filthy Jews!” We were all too surprised to respond – it happened so fast and then he was gone. I have lived here for two years and this was the first time I experienced an antisemitic incident in this particular neighbourhood.
