Student Voices

  • February 12, 2018 – Columbia College Chicago Jewish Student (Shira) – “Growing up, I was confronted with a lot of anti-Semitism in casual ways and people would joke and draw swastikas. It’s obviously not funny and it’s not a joke. It just made me sad that this was continuing in Chicago, but then again we live in a time of hatred and it’s scary if you think about it.” Read More
  • February 12, 2018 – Columbia College Chicago Jewish Student (Monica) – “It’s fair to say this is anti-Semitic rhetoric and this is what’s wrong about it. Offensive graffiti anyone could have assumed anything. It’s misrepresenting the story to not say they were drawing swastikas and it feels like it’s another way to minimize anti-Semitism.” Read More
