The Jewish teacher attacked last week in Paris was recorded on camera describing the assault. The footage, which Algemeiner published today, features the 59-year-old man, identified only as David, recounting the attacked, which occurred as he exited a kosher restaurant on Rue Manin.

His nose was broken and a swastika drawn on his chest by the assailants, whom he described as three North African men, and who reportedly fled once the attack drew the attention of passersby.

Algemeiner translated parts of the video.

“They started to curse me out: ‘dirty Jew,’ ‘death to the Jews,’ ‘son of a b***,’ etc. Then they started to beat me up,” David says in the clip before breaking down in tears. “I was hit on my face, I got my nose fractured… And then one of them took something out of his pocket, I thought it was a knife… It was a marker… And this is what they did to me (showing his chest), a swastika as they were screaming ‘dirty Jew.’”

It’s a difficult video to watch.
