Go back


We are horrified by the violent antisemitic attack yesterday in Halle on Yom Kippur. Our thoughts are with the families of the two victims of this senseless and cruel manifestation of far-right extremism. The devastation could have been so much worse without the security infrastructure at the synagogue where 70 people worshipped on this holiest of days. More must be done to prevent such attacks by countering the spread of antisemitism, Holocaust denial and hatred in all its forms.
