Three Jewish students at Cambridge University walked into the school’s Graduate Union building, to find it was full of members from the sports societies from Christ’s College, who had rented out the bar area, according to a report in The Telegraph.

After walking in, the three Jewish men saw it was a closed party and tried to walk out, but were accosted by the mob, who, after noticing their Kippot, began cursing and violently beating them.

At least seven people took part in the beating.

Shlomo Roiter-Jesner described to The Telegraph what was yelled at them,

“We, and other bystanders, heard a number of vicious anti-Semitic slurs including ‘f—— Jew, you don’t belong here’, ‘dirty Jew’ and to myself, ‘f— off, darkie’.

The college reports that two students were disciplined though the two denied initiating the violence or using anti-Semitic language, only foul language.

There was an audio-less CCTV recording of the attack.

The Jewish students are accusing the college of covering up the attack and failing to investigate it properly.

Professor Jane Stapleton, master of Christ’s College, told the Telegraph, “I reject categorically that Christ’s has engaged in a cover-up on this matter.”
