Campus Monitor - Auburn University
- May 1, 2017 – Auburn University Jewish Student (Lily) – “…[T]here is more to be addressed on how to respond to anti-Semitism on my campus as well as at others across the country. To be Jewish in America today is to be in a constant flux based on how people respond to our Jewishness. With the sharp uptick in anti-Semitic acts and hate speech nationally, we can expect to see more such concerns. Until now, I had never felt unsafe because of my Jewish heritage.” Read more
- April 18, 2017 – Auburn University Jewish Student (Courtney) – “I think people have a perception that being Jewish in the Deep South is a place where you would be afraid to be Jewish. But up until this event, I haven’t really found that to be the case….With this particular event, safety has been our primary concern, and I think both the university and the community have tried to make safety their primary concern as well. And so I feel like the community has been supported in that respect.” Read more
- April 14, 2017 – Auburn University Jewish Student Leader (Lily) – “[The fliers not only] promoted typical conspiracies about Jews, but encouraged people to actively resist us for existing. The fact that the fliers appeared around Passover shows such blatant aggression, such blatant antisemitism. This is not about arguing for a different political view or for freedom of speech. This was a hate crime. I want to see administrators investigating and finding out who is responsible for the posters and the website. There are security cameras everywhere, they have the resources to track these people down. But, all I’ve seen so far is the university trying to make sure they are not held accountable.” Read more
