The United Nations held on 26 June in New York an Informal meeting of the General Assembly on Combating Antisemitism and Other Forms of Racism and Hate: The Challenges of Teaching Tolerance and Respect in the Digital Age.
European Commission Coordinator on combating Antisemitism Katharina von Schnurbein said in a speech: “Antisemitism is not just a European problem and the EU is determined to fight it beyond its boarders together with its partners.”
UN chief António Guterres recounted a study that revealed a 13% rise in violent anti-Semitic incidents in 2018 compared to the year before, and observed that attacks on synagogues, graveyards and individuals in the United States, Europe and elsewhere, “continue to make many Jews feel insecure”.
