Anti-semitic attacks are on the rise, not only in Berlin. Two young men who didn’t want to believe that wearing a kippa might be dangerous found out the hard way: Not long after donning the skullcaps, they were attacked.
The skullcap worn by an Israeli youth when he was attacked on the streets of Berlin will become an exhibit at Berlin's Jewish Museum. They hope to continue a dialogue about anti-Semitism prompted by the assault.
Berlin is a holding a "wear a kippa" protest following the recent anti-Semitic attack in the city. Has wearing indicators of certain religions become dangerous in Germany? And what does the Jewish yarmulke stand for?
Thousands have rallied in the capital and elsewhere in Germany to express outrage at a spate of anti-Semitic incidents. DW's Jefferson Chase attended the Berlin event to see if it entailed anything more than symbolism.
Religious and political leaders condemned the attack on two men wearing kippas in an affluent Berlin neighborhood. One of the victims says he wore the head covering to see if it was unsafe, as a friend had told him.
