Solidarity for jews in Germany and everywhere around the world!
We strongly condemn the massacre committed by the Hamas terrorist organization against Israel on October 7, 2023. Those who support the acts of Hamas promote hatred, war and death. Those who celebrate the acts of Hamas do not want peace. Whoever wants Israel to be wiped out, whoever wants to exterminate Jews in this country and worldwide for this purpose and threatens them both physically and verbally, is an Antisemite.
We stand unreservedly for peace, mutual respect and humanity. That is why we hope for a political and, above all, a human solution for the lives of the Jews and for the lives of the Palestinians and for the lives of all people worldwide.
We are all equal – there is no Christian, Muslim, Jewish blood. There is only human blood. (…) We are human beings, nothing else. Just be human! (Margot Friedländer, Holocaustüberlebende; translated from the German original)
Antisemitism is a permanent and latent composite of hostile attitudes towards Jews as a collective. These attitudes manifest themselves in individuals as prejudice, in culture as myths, ideology, folklore and imagery.
They can also take the form of individual or collective actions – social or legal discrimination, political mobilization against Jews, and collective or state violence – aimed at distancing oneself from Jews, driving them out or annihilating them.

Show your solidarity and become one of our current
In light of the growing number of anti-semitic attacks, it is important that we as a community and as individuals show visible solidarity with our fellow Jewish citizens through emotional attachment, verbal support or vital actions. We must confront the spatial demands of Jewish hatred.
It is therefore an urgent matter for us to make a contribution against the rampant antisemitism with the Stop Antisemitism Ribbon. It is a symbol that – worn recognizably – says: We oppose any form of antisemitism.
Show your rejection of Antisemitism. Wear the ribbon wherever and whenever you can. Take a visible stance.
The initiative Stop Antisemitism is an association of citizens. We do not pursue economic profit. Income from the sale of the ribbon will be donated after the production costs are covered.
What is Antisemitism?
“Antisemitism is a two-thousand-year-old virus, …
…seemingly incurable. There are always other reasons: Religion, race. But today we don’t necessarily say ‘Jews’, today it’s the Israelis, without really understanding the connections or even knowing what’s going on behind the scenes.” (Anita Lasker-Wallfisch on 31 January 2018 in the German Bundestag)
What can we do about it?
Jews in Germany
“I believe that young Jews have no future here.” …
“I believe that young Jews have no future here.” This is what Evelyn Mende says. She came to Germany at the age of 8 and will now, at 46, return to Israel with her daughter Golda.

One year ago we launched the initiative ‘Stop Antisemitism’ to show a visible sign of our solidarity with victims of antisemitism and those at risk of being victimized every day.
The reason for our engagement was the screening of the documentary „Weil Du Jude bist“. It tells of attacks on a Jewish boy and the physical and psychological violence he suffered at a Berlin school. This is what happens among us.
We didn’t want to simply stop and stare in dismay, but set an active agenda – and so the idea to stop antisemitism came into being.
The initiative Stop Antisemitism is an association of citizens who are active against racism in all its forms, but above all against antisemitism. We don’t belong to any party, we don’t pursue any political goals except engagement against antisemitism.
