Strategic concept: More education about Judaism

-

To counteract antisemitism, the federal government wants to provide more information for the first time in a “national strategy”.


In order to better protect Jews in Germany from prejudice, hostility and hatred, the Federal Government aims to take systematic measures against anti-Semitism at all levels of government and society.

At the same time, he wants to make enrichment through Jewish life more visible in everyday life.

First “National Strategy Against Anti-Semitism”

Anti-Semitism Commissioner Felix Klein presented the first “National Strategy for Jewish Life and Against Anti-Semitism” on Wednesday. Specifically, this involves looking closely at what is missing in the fight against anti-Semitism and collecting relevant data.

At the heart of Klein’s concept is education and enlightenment, both about Jewish history and about the Holocaust and Israel. Finally, it concerns the targeted action of the police and judiciary against hostilities and criminal offenses so that Jews can live in safety.

Times of crisis as a test

All levels of government and society should work together to implement this – sports clubs or youth clubs, for example – and pay more attention to the perspective of those affected.

Klein said that the current times of crisis, in particular, are a test of social cohesion. “Because in these times of uncertainty, people tend to give so-called simple answers – answers that polarize, exclude, and divide.”

Anti-Semitism is one of the so-called easy answers.

Increase in anti-Semitic incidents

Klein added that data from police statistics and registry offices has shown an increase in anti-Semitic incidents and crimes over the years. “The number of hate posts on the internet has already exploded, and acts of violence in the analogue world are also high in the third quarter of this year.”

According to the federal government, 306 anti-Semitic crimes were recorded in the third quarter, including eleven acts of violence.
