“Sieg Heil”, “Juden Pack” and swastikas – carved into the door of the Biel synagogue. Not in 1939, but last Thursday. Not an isolated case: this year, three more attacks on Jewish institutions have already been registered.  The  latest anti-Semitism report from the Swiss Association of Israelite Communities (SIG) and the Foundation against Racism and Anti-Semitism (GRA) shows that anti-Semitism – no matter how reluctant to admit it – is still a problem today.

“We have been warning for a long time: Words will be followed by deeds,” says Jonathan Kreutner, General Secretary of SIG. As the report shows, the internet is teeming with anti-Jewish slogans. This lists 485 serious anti-Semitic incidents in the online area alone. “What was particularly noticeable in 2020: Half of the slogans were related to conspiracy theories.”
