Czech Jewish Federation notes rise in anti-Semitism online

The number of anti-Semitic texts appearing online rose significantly last year, the Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic says in a new report.

There were 874 instances of false, vulgar or stereotypical claims about Jews, 180 more than in 2019, including Holocaust denial. Threats of physical violence also increased year-on-year, almost exclusively on social networks.
