Greece: The teacher told the class that Israelis are Nazis
Leon David made Aliyah from Greece to Israel. Asked whether he experienced antisemitism in Greece he answers: "Of course. Many times I had to clean up neo-Nazi graffiti and deal with racist abuse."
But the most memorable incident was when a teacher, who did not know he was Jewish, told the class that what Israel is doing to the Palestinians is just like what Hitler did to the Jews. He later approached the teacher and she apologized, but the incident encouraged him to come to Israel.
