Worrying Report: 83% Increase in Antisemitic Incidents in Germany

The Federal Association of Departments for Research and Information on Antisemitism in Germany recently published a worrying report indicating an 83% increase in antisemitic incidents in 2023.

Throughout 2023, 4,782 complaints about antisemitism were registered in the country, averaging 13 complaints per day.

The main increase in antisemitic incidents began after October 7, as 2,787 incidents were registered during the last three months of the year, more than all the incidents in the entirety of 2022, totaling 2,616 incidents.

The report noted that more and more Jews encounter antisemitism at workplaces, educational institutions, and on social media. Additionally, two-thirds of the reports on antisemitic violence in 2023 also came after October 7th.

Further, concerns about antisemitism have also been raised at the British Medical Association’s (BMA ) annual conference, after a Jewish doctor was heckled by at least two doctors who shouted “shame” at her after she said she was Jewish.

The BMA denounced the incident, calling it “unacceptable” and gave Dr. Sutton-Klein 15 seconds of extra speaking time as a result of the interruption, according to British media. (INN / VFI News)
