This Upsetting Video Shows What It’s Like Being Jewish In Paris
Journalist Zvika Klein was taped walking through Paris for a day, capturing all the comments made to him by passersby. “What is he doing here, Mommy? Doesn’t he know he will be killed?”
In a project for online news site NRG, photographer Dov Belhassen documented French journalist Zvika Klein walking through Paris streets on a normal day. The idea was inspired by last year’s wildly viral “10 Hours of Walking Through New York City as a Woman”.
Klein began first at tourist attractions, which seemed calm, but as he and his cameraman walked further away from the more obvious locations they both became more anxious and aware of hostility.
“Walking by a school in one of Paris’s neighbourhoods, a boy shouted â€˜Viva Palestine’ at me. Moments later, passing by a group of teens, one of the girls remarked, â€˜Look at that — it’s the first time I’ve ever seen such a thing.'”
