A French Jewish woman was assaulted by three men in an apparent antisemitic attack in the Paris suburb Sarcelles last Wednesday, the Algemeiner has learned.
The three assailants were of African origin and shouted “Hitler did not finish his work” and “dirty race” while assaulting the woman, according to a French antisemitism watchdog.
The victim said she was attacked after the son of one of the assailants threw a ball in her direction. The three men approached the woman to retrieve the ball when they began attacking her, according to the report.
The victim filed a complaint with local police shortly after the assault.
Because the attack was so violent, it was recommended that the woman take a 15-day furlough from work to recuperate, said the National Bureau of Vigilance Against Antisemitism.
Sarcelles is noted for its large Jewish community, and some call it “Little Jerusalem,”according to French-Jewish news portal JSS News. Last summer, the authorities reported violent attacks against local synagogues and Jewish-owned businesses.
Recently, the Algemeiner reported another Paris antisemitic assault involving a 40-person mob on Boulevard Voltaire.
