A female Holocaust survivor and her rabbi son were reportedly attacked on a London bus this week by a woman making anti-Semitic comments.

The incident took place on Wednesday on a bus travelling from Stoke Newington to Stamford Hill. The Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) reported that both the mother and the son were “punched in the head” with the rabbi having his religious hat being thrown on the floor and the Holocaust survivor “left traumatised”.

What sounds equally shocking is how the bus driver seemingly refused to take action to help the couple. It is reported that other passengers pleaded with the driver to stop the bus as they were currently passing a police station. The driver refused, prompting the CAA to call upon Transport for London to investigate the driver’s actions.

“Passengers pleaded with the bus driver to stop, as the incident took place as they were driving by a police station, but he allegedly refused,” said the CAA.

“This is yet another unprovoked act of violence against members of the Jewish community going about their day,” said a spokesman.

“Transport for London must explain why the bus driver took no action, allowing the abuse to go on despite the violence and the protests of other passengers, and the assailant must quickly be identified and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”

If you have any more information, please contact the police on 101 or Stamford Hill Shomrim on 0300 999 0123, quoting reference number: CAD4563 9/2/21.
