Anti Semitism in South Africa

By Jennifer L. Golub

American Jewish Committee (AJC), December 1993

In light of the reversal of South Africa's apartheid policy in February 1990, the author addresses the radical transformation that South Africa is continually undergoing, and analyzes South African attitudes toward Jews. Due to the racial unrest of the 1970s and the outbreak of neo-Nazi events in 1987, most South African Jews moved out of the country. Although the white South African establishment does not manifest much antisemitism, the extreme right, known as the Afrikaner Resistance Movement, does. There is also a great amount of antisemitism among South African Blacks and Muslims.
