"The future of a peaceful, united and tolerant Europe lies in all of our hands. We must be proactive in the face of this dark, encroaching racism, hate and intolerance, and refuse to passively accept it. Our European future depends on it."

Tel-Aviv, Israel, Kantor Center Annual Report on anti-Semitism (2017). Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry at Tel-Aviv University
(Wednesday, April 11, 2018) – With the release today of the Tel Aviv University’s Kantor Center 2017 Annual Report on Antisemitism Worldwide, Europe's largest Jewish communities are experiencing a normalisation and mainstreaming of antisemitism not seen since the Second World War.

While the number of violent anti-Semitic incidents dropped in 2017 by 9%, from 361 cases in 2016 to 327, according to the report, all other manifestations of antisemitism rose in many places globally. Germany, the world's fastest growing Jewish community, saw an increase of all types of antisemitic acts from 644 incidents in 2016 to 707 in 2017. Among these were 24 violent cases in 2017 compared to 15 in 2016.
