Is there still anti-Semitism in Germany?

April 2, 2018

The Jewish community in Germany, concerned about a possible increase in anti-Semitic abuse, asked schools to monitor religious intimidation among students, especially during recess.

The petition came after people in Germany were surprised by reports that a Jewish girl at a primary school in Berlin was bullied by her Muslim peers and even received death threats after she said she did not believe in Allah, an incident that was reported by her father in the Berliner Zeitung. This heightened fears of a resurgence of anti-Semitism in Germany.
