Poland: Antisemitism being 'normalized,' European Jewish group warns

Via Jerusalem Post:
There has been a "distinct normalization of antisemitism" in Poland, the European Jewish Congress (EJC) warned on Thursday and called on the Polish government to respond forcefully.

The EJC also expressed "grave concerns" over the deteriorating relationship between the Polish government and Poland's Jewish population at a time of rising antisemitism in the country, stating that no senior Polish government official has met with the Union of Jewish Communities in Poland, the democratic body responsible for representing Polish Jewry, in approximately one year.

"We have seen a dramatic rise in recent antisemitic incidents in Poland, which appear to have coincided with the Polish Government closing its communications with the official representatives of the Jewish community," said President of the EJC Dr Moshe Kantor.

"There has been a distinct normalization of antisemitism, racism and xenophobia in Poland recently," continued Kantor. "We hope that the Polish government will stem this hate and act forcefully against it."
