KRAKOW – The European Jewish Parliament expressed concern at growing anti-Semitism in Eastern Europe at its General Assembly in Krakow, Poland, this week.

Five Polish MPs, members of the European Parliament, professors from the city’s Jagiellonian University and representatives of Poland’s Jewish community took part in the assembly held on Monday and Tuesday in Krakow’s city hall.

The assembly called on EU leaders to take strong measures to ensure the security and safety of Jews living in Europe in view of the increase in anti- Semitism and the rise of far-right parties such as Jobbik in Hungary and Svoboda in Ukraine.

Klaudia Klimek, a Polish member of the European Jewish Parliament from Krakow, told The Jerusalem Post that the decision to choose Krakow as the host city for the Assembly was a symbolic step.
