Germany: Jewish journalist experiences antisemitic harassment

Tamara Anthony is a Jewish journalist.  In an article in Tagesschau she describes an antisemitic incident she recently experienced (h/t Honestly Concerned, Translation help by Daniel).

Tamara was with friends at a pub/restaurant in an exclusive neighborhood in Hamburg.  Some well-dressed civilized looking guy said one should gas (murder) all Jews. When she said: "I'm Jewish, so that means you want to murder me?" he said: "In this case, yes!"

She refused to be terrorized and leave the establishment.  One friend heard the exchange and also tried to get the guy to leave.

She said the most shocking thing was his attitude: Being nicely dressed and his attitude that his opinion was shared by majority.
