Berlin Schoolgirls Hit by Anti-Semitic Abuse
Jewish school girls were verbally assaulted with anti-Semitic slurs in Berlin on Monday, in the second attack on Jews reported in the German capital in less than a week.
Last week, Daniel Alter, a Berlin rabbi, was assaulted by youths in West Berlin in a suspected anti-Semitic attack, witnessed by his 6-year-old daughter.
Alter told the German daily Bild that the attackers approached him and asked, “Are you a Jew?” Then they blocked his way and began hitting him in the face, while hurling anti-Semitic curses. They also threatened his daughter’s life.
On Monday, a group of 13 Jewish school girls, from the ultra-Orthodox school “Or Avner” in Berlin, said they were surrounded by boys and girls of a “Middle Eastern appearance” who reported that anti-Semitic slurs were hurled toward them. Local police said that no one was physically hurt in the incident.
