The Anti-Jewish Riots in Oslo
On a weekend in January 2009, Oslo was shaken: Massive protests against the war in Gaza degenerated into the most violent riots Norway had seen for three decades. Despite massive media attention, few seem to have grasped the real significance of the events. What were their political messages? How did the Left respond to the protests and the ensuing riots? To what extent did the riots fall into age-old patterns of anti-Semitic hatred?
The Anti-Jewish Riots in Oslo is a personal narrative of the events, as one Norwegian anti-fascist activist experienced them. This book is a must-read; both as a reminder and as a warning.
