20 years ago, the UN held a conference in Durban, South Africa. The stated goal was to promote effective and sustained action to eliminate all forms of racism and racial discrimination. Instead, the conference became a forum to attack and vilify Israel, and threaten Jewish groups in attendance. Watch American Jewish Committee's special program remembering this infamous conference and its enduring legacy. We also thanked those governments that have made the struggle against antisemitism a priority and refused to legitimize the Durban process.
