Countries of the European Union have to ensure better security for Jewish institutions in connection with the terrorist attack in German city of Halle. EC Coordinator on combatting Antisemitism Katharina von Schnurbein said this, as Deutsche Welle reports. The European Commission calls for adequate protection for Jewish institutions in all EU member states.
“In a number of states, improvements in this regard are needed,” Katharina von Schnurbein said.
She noted that this should be done in all Europe, and each state is responsible for the security of Jewish communities. She added that EU countries should fund measures to improve the security of synagogues.
As it was reported earlier, President of the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine Boris Lozhkin said Jews all over the world were in deep sorrow for the terrorist attack victims in the German city of Halle.
