Merkel Condemns Return Of Anti-Semitism

2018-11-09 13:26:131 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

German Chancellor Angela Merkel condemned a "worrying" resurgence of anti-Semitism in Germany, including a rise in violence attacks, and appealed for a defense of liberal democratic values and institutions. She made the comments in a memorial speech marking 80 years since Kristallnacht or the "Night of Broken Glass," the 1938 rampage of state-sponsored violence by the Nazi regime against Jewish communities, which caused widespread looting and destruction of Jewish properties across Germany and Austria. She said that Kristallnacht had "paved the way to the Holocaust," which she described as the "the greatest rupture of civilization." But she also said that "the terror of Nazism did not happen overnight but grew gradually," warning that the German public's general acceptance of anti-Semitism is what allowed the Nazi regime to carry out the Holocaust. Anti-Semitism and racism remain an issue that Germany grapples with today, she said: "Racism, anti-Semitism and prejudices did not just vanish.
