Speaking at the 70th anniversary of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel said that anti-Semitism in Germany “never disappeared.”

Delivering a keynote address in a ceremony commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday said that many German Jews still do not feel safe and that anti-Semitism in Germany “never disappeared.”

“Many Jews do not feel safe, do not feel respected in our country. This is one part of today’s reality and it is one that causes me grave concern,” Merkel said at the ceremony in Berlin.
