Belgium: Antisemitism makes pupils hide their Jewishness

From the CCOJB:

Serge Rozen, head of some Belgian Jewish organisations, the CCOJB, extended his greetings to the Jewish community on the occasion of Rosh Hashana,

Mr Rozen remarked that a few Jewish pupils had to leave state-funded schools because they were bullied or were the butt of anti-Semitic insults.  

He added that the few cases which received media attention are the visible tip of the iceberg.  Many other Jewish children, through fear and a hostile environment, resort to hiding their Jewishness.
