Augsburg gegen Antisemitismus


At his visit at the local synagogue Augsburg mayor Dr. Kurt Gribl condemned recently noted local manifestations of Antisemitism as spillover effect of the so-called “Gaza-War” and promissed to fight them back. If required he also considered to ban demonstrations when it is foreseeable that the demonstrations will have Antisemitic and violent intentions, as it is practise in cases of domestic extrem rightwingers. Mayor Gribl also assured the Jews of Augsburg his solidarity and that of all the other religious communities in Augsburg, also by the heads of the Muslim community in Augsburg.

Mayor Gribls visit has a special value since he chose the 8th of August which is a legal holiday in Augsburg (not in neighboring communities, Bavaria, Germany, Europa or elsewhere in the world), the “Friedensfest” (Festival of Peace).
