Schindler’s List inspired me to challenge extremism

Jason Walter’s story: I was Radicalized

Jason Walters self-radicalized and allied himself with the Dutch Jihadi group Hofstad Group, whose spiritual head Mohammed Bouyeri killed Dutch film producer and open critic of Islam Theo Van Gogh. Jason was imprisoned for nine years for throwing a grenade at police while trying to evade arrest. In prison, studying philosophy helped him understand how illogical jihadi extremism was, but it was a screening of Schindlers List that finally made him realize all extremism is the same, whether jihadi or Nazi.
