Politico: Jewish community 'gravely' concerned about Poland's rising antisemitism

The European Jewish Congress (EJC) said in a statement Friday it has “grave concerns” about a recent rise in antisemitic incidents in Poland under the conservative Law and Justice government.

“We have seen a dramatic rise in recent antisemitic incidents in Poland, which appear to have coincided with the Polish government closing its communications with the official representatives of the Jewish community,” said EJC President Moshe Kantor. The group added that no senior Polish government minister has met with leaders of the Union of Jewish Communities in Poland in about a year.

The EJC said recent antisemitic  acts include the display of fascist slogans and flags at state ceremonies, as well as Law and Justice MP Bogdan Rzońca writing on social media: “I wonder why, despite the Holocaust, there are so many abortionists among Jews.”
