Thursday, 30 June 2022 | The Department for Research and Information on Anti-Semitism (RIAS) in Germany said on Tuesday that it documented 2,738 anti-Semitic incidents last year, including 63 attacks and six cases of extreme violence.
The German government’s commissioner to combat anti-Semitism, Felix Klein, said the number of incidents was worrying but that “at the same time, each of the reported incidents is also a step toward reducing the dark figures,” reported the AP.
The report issued by the group that tracks anti-Semitism in Germany found that the coronavirus pandemic and related anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and the Middle East conflict were the main themes.
According to Benjamin Steinitz, the head of RIAS, 964 people were affected by the incidents.
