The Monster Among Us, is Media Projects’ latest film about the alarming rise of anti-Semitism in Europe. The film includes excerpts from almost 200 hours of footage shot in Germany, Hungary, France, England, Holland and Belgium.
Anti-Semitism has surfaced on university campuses, in the media, on the streets, on the Internet, at political demonstrations and in seemingly innocent social situations.
The Monster Among Us examines this wave of anti-Semitism against European Jews and their institutions, mainly from the point of view of those who have directly experienced the violence or live every day with the threat.
In recent conversations with American Jews as well as non-Jews, it’s surprising by how many are un-informed about the problem. Some have heard about the violence in France, but most are totally unaware of what’s happening in the rest of Europe
