An illustration of the trivialization of anti-Semitism among young people? A teenager is the target of an investigation, after having admitted to being the author of several messages advocating the Nazi regime in a classroom at the Alphonse-Daudet college, in the 14th arrondissement of Paris, we learned from police Source.

“The juvenile prosecutor’s office, informed of an incident in a school environment, referred the matter to the 14th arrondissement police station for an investigation into the charge of apologizing for crimes against humanity,” the Paris prosecutor’s office told Le Parisien on Wednesday.

The case dates back to May 24, when these inscriptions were observed in a classroom. On site, the establishment’s staff discovered swastikas and inscriptions like “Fuck the Jews” or even “Hitler” surrounded by a heart, leaving little doubt as to the message sent.

However, after denouncing herself, the young girl in 4th grade “pleads ignorance of the symbols and their meaning”, reports the Paris rectorate, which ensures that it is monitoring this situation “carefully”.

Also, a disciplinary council should take place soon in order to rule on the student’s case, while waiting for the courts to take a decision. Since the attack on October 7, 2023 in Israel, the increase in acts of an anti-Semitic nature is 1,000% in France, where there were 1,676 acts in 2023, compared to 436 in 2022.

In schools (i.e. 12.7% of the total), they are up 1,200%. On October 11, 2023, a 13-year-old student from the Albert-Camus college in Brunoy was questioned by the police after publishing messages on the digital workspace (ENT) of his establishment in which he demanded the release of the anti-Semitic polemicist. Ahmed Moualek, who called for the killing of Jewish figures and praised Adolf Hitler.

“Among younger generations, exposed to the overflow of social networks, anti-Semitism is becoming ordinary. If we do not put in place vigorous public policies at school, at university, we will allow an anti-Semitic society to take hold,” reacted political scientist Dominique Reynié, on the sidelines of an investigation revealed in the columns du Parisien on May 4. According to this study, school constitutes the “first place of exposure to these acts”.
