ABSTRACT

S. Hrg. 108-370: Anti-Semitism in Europe: Hearing before the Subcommittee on European Affairs of the Committee on Foreign Relations, United States Senate, One Hundred Eighth Congress, First Session, October 22, 2003   [open pdf - 51MB]

The purpose of this hearing is to examine anti-Semitism in Europe and the best practices that have been implemented to address the current problem and prevent any future acts. During the last 3 years, there have been documented increases in anti-Semitic incidents taking place throughout Europe. The desecration of Jewish cemeteries and monuments, vandalism of Jewish homes, schools, community centers, fire-bombing of synagogues, violence against Jewish individuals are all troubling signs that many of the countries of Europe are not doing enough, possibly, to protect the rights of Jewish citizens and also, importantly, educate their populace of the importance of religious tolerance and individual rights. Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Joseph R. Biden, Jon S. Corzine, David A. Harris, Mark B. Levin, Jean-David Levitte, Richard G. Lugar, Edward B. O'Donnell, Christopher H. Smith, and George V. Voinovich.
