Anti-Semitism in Sweden Forces Jews to Question their Future

Attacks against Jews in Malmoe, Sweden’s third largest city, have left members of the community questioning their future in a place known for its “multiculturalism.”

Jewish people have lived in Malmoe for over two centuries, often arriving in the south Swedish port city – a safe haven for generations – after fleeing persecution and intolerance in other parts of Europe.

But though waves of immigration over the past two decades have made the area more diverse, hate crimes appear to be on the rise and many people –
paradoxically – say they feel less secure.

Highlighting a problem many Swedes had thought long relegated to history, the US special envoy for anti-Semitism even visited Malmoe last year.
