2018 Antisemitism report in the Netherlands
The Netherlands in 2018 saw a major increase in recorded antisemitic incidents, which totaled a record 230 cases.
Of that tally, the Center for Information and Documentation, which is Dutch Jewry’s watchdog group, recorded last year 135 real-life incidents that did not occur online, the group said in its annual report (The English summary can be found here) published Monday.
That number represents a 19-percent increase over the 113 real-life incidents reported in 2017.
However, violent incidents decreased to only one compared to five in 2017.
Incidents that occurred in the victim’s direct environment increased from 24 in 2017 to 40 last year.
