Jewish Community fears rise of anti-semitic violence in Germany | DW News

DW News published this video item, entitled “Jewish Community fears rise of anti-semitic violence in Germany | DW News” – below is their description.

One year after an attack on a synagogue in the eastern city of Halle, the head of Germany’s domestic security service, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), has warned that Germany is experiencing a “steep rise” in anti-Semitism. On October 9, 2019, an armed 27-year-old man attempted to shoot his way into a packed synagogue on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year in Judaism. A well-secured door prevented him from carrying out an attack inside. The man then killed two bystanders before fleeing and later being taken into custody. Last week, a man dressed in military fatigues attacked a Jewish man outside a synagogue in Hamburg. DW talks to Marina Weisband, member of the German Green Party and also a member of the Jewish community in Berlin.
