Anti-Semitism is what we deal with the most on the Internet. The number has quadrupled in a year to reach 32 in 2018. “These posts extend from one on Jewish conspiracy as far as the one about Hitler who did not finish his job,” UNIA stresses.
The Centre also dealt with 31 files relating to negationist comments (who deny the reality of the holocaust) and 15 verbal attacks or threats on persons identified as Jewish.
Six acts of vandalism were also recorded in 2018, compared to only one in 2017.
Since 2008, UNIA has recorded a slight increase in anti-Semiticly linked files. This can be explained by the fact that “we are moving towards a society of confrontation and more citizens are aware of UNIA as a human rights defender,” UNIA suggests.
