Report – The Rise of Antisemitism at European Universities as a result of the October 7 Massacre

EUJS has published a report on the Rise of Antisemitism at European Universities as a result of the October 7 Massacre.  For the compilation of this report, we received more than one hundred and ten (110) reports of antisemitic incidents across Europe. However, this in no way reflects the true magnitude of incidents that have taken place, as many have gone unreported.

This report has been sent out to the European Commission, Members of the European Parliament, major Jewish organisations, Heads of Jewish communities, our Partners, Universities, and the press.

The message we want to spread with the report is: Jewish students do not feel safe on their campuses. Jewish students have even stopped attending classes out of fear due to the extremely hostile campus atmosphere. In 2024, this is unacceptable.

The European Union of Jewish Students will continue to gather information and data on antisemitism from University campuses across Europe. We will continue to fight against all forms of antisemitism, be it on campus or online, and to protect our Jewish students. We will continue, throughout, to advocate for a world that will allow for Jews to showcase and celebrate their Judaism in a positive way. But for this, collaboration on a university, institutional, governmental, and societal level is needed.

If you have experienced antisemitism in your university in Europe, please report it to us: https://forms.gle/SzGzc7R9NUsoz9yG7

The European Commission also released a statement on their concern on the rise of antisemitism in Europe that you can find here: https://ec.europa.eu/commission/presscorner/detail/en/statement_23_5527
