Question for written answer E-000771-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Geoffroy Didier (PPE)

 Subject:  Resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe
 Answer in writing 

A Eurobarometer survey on anti-Semitism and the perceptions of anti-Semitism among EU citizens was recently conducted in the 28 Member States. The results are worrying: more than half of Europeans consider anti-Semitism to be an issue in their country. More worrying still, two thirds believe that anti-Semitism in Europe has increased.

These figures show that the resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe is cause for alarm, and that the EU needs to take a firm stance and better educate its citizens about anti-Semitism.

The European Commissioner for Justice, Věra Jourová, has welcomed the fact that more than 70% of anti-Semitic hate messages posted online have been deleted. This is a good start, but the EU also needs to step up its work on remembrance and awareness-raising to ensure that future generations’ mentalities and opinions change.

Against this background, does the Commission intend to propose a programme to counter anti-Semitism in Europe?
