Danish Jews hit by mounting anti-Semitism

0

COPENHAGEN: Denmark’s small Jewish community, which on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) buried a Jewish man shot dead outside the Copenhagen synagogue, has been the butt of mounting anti-Semitism in recent years after centuries of living at peace. Unlike many European Jews, Denmark’s Jews were never forced to wear a yellow star nor targeted by anti-Jewish measures during the German Nazi occupation of World War II. Yet the Nordic country of 5.6 million people currently is proving no exception to the rise in anti-Semitic attacks across the continent.
