2019 Antisemitism report in Brandenburg

In 2019, the research and information center for antisemitism (RIAS) Brandenburg recorded 137 antisemitic incidents. With 23 cases, most of the incidents took place in the state capital Potsdam.

Dorina Feldmann, staff member of the antisemitism department and responsible for RIAS monitoring, explains:

"A third of the incidents in 2019 were documented by RIAS Brandenburg. This clearly illustrates the effect of the monitoring: after one year, the bright field in Brandenburg was considerably expanded. However, many antisemitic incidents remain in the dark ”.

From 2014 to 2019, a total of 539 antisemitic crimes had become known to the police, it was said. Around 96 percent of them were extremely right-wing motivated.
