As Jews stop to memorialize the Holocaust on Holocaust Remembrance Day this year, many are concerned with the rising tide of anti-Semitism in Europe and the UK.

In Europe, the last few years have seen a series of horrible attacks on Jews and Jewish institutions, from a shooting at a Jewish school in Toulouse, France to an attack on Belgium’s Jewish Museum. More recently, media attention has turned to the UK, where the campaign for mayoral and council elections taking place today has drudged up some ugly anti-Semitism.

Dr. Robert Rozett, director of the Yad Vashem Libraries, discusses the new anti-Semitism, and Jonathan Sacerdoti, the director of communications at the Campaign Against anti-Semitism in the UK, discusses how British Jews are responding to it.
