Like America, Germany faces renewed racial tension with shadows from a troubled past. A terrorist in military garb burst into a synagogue in Hamburg on the festival of Sukkot, known to many Christians as the Feast of Tabernacles. A local student observed that “this is a public holiday we celebrate outside, a festival of openness, not one where you have to hide yourself.”

The attacker carried a swastika in his pocket and savagely beat a 26-year-old student with a shovel, causing grievous head injuries.

Last year, a neo-Nazi gunman attacked a synagogue in Halle during services for Yom Kippur. The year 2019 saw 2,000 German anti-Semitic incidents, or more than five a day—a 13 percent rise.

Only 200,000 Jews live in Germany, less than one fourth of one percent of the population. Yet even in America, with a vastly stronger Jewish community, synagogue shootings in Pittsburgh and Poway plus anti-Semitic incidents across the country show savage Jew hatred didn’t die with Hitler.
