In the wake of a thwarted attack on a synagogue in the eastern Germany city of Halle, calls are also growing for police protection for mosques in Germany. They come as the country's interior minister warned of the elevated risk of far-right attacks.
The recent attack on a synagogue in Halle made headlines around the world and fueled concern of growing anti-Semitism and the threat of right-wing extremism in Germany. Who were the victims of this heinous act?
The list of German politicians whose lives have been threatened by right-wing extremists is growing longer. Berlin has unveiled plans to tackle the problem, but critics say the changes need to be made now.
Interior officials have presented measures to fight extremism following last week's synagogue shooting. Proposed measures included extra protection for synagogues and fast-tracking investigations of anti-Semitic crime.
The anti-Semitic attacker allegedly acted alone, but he was part of a digital community. Via the internet, hatred and agitation are spread across borders. DW takes a look at the digital world of right-wing extremism.
