South African Students Create Palestinian Anne Frank For Israel Apartheid Week

Doctored images depicting Holocaust victim Anne Frank dressed in a Palestinian keffiyeh circulated around a South African university on Wednesday.

The picture was designed as part of the Palestinian Solidarity Committee at Witwatersrand University’s annual “Israel Apartheid Week.”

“This is a flyer that draws attention to the fact that the same racism, hardship and oppression that was faced by Jews during the Nazi times is now being directed towards Palestinians,” a student who helped design the photo tweeted.

The fliers have been posted in at least 35 different locations around campus.
