It is said that this is happening in parallel with the increase of those who are identified as members of the far right.

BfV reported in its annual report that in 2018 the number of anti-Semitic violent acts increased by 71.4 percent, to 48, compared to 21 in the previous year, AP reported.

The report says that the number of extreme right extremists increased by 100, to 24,100 people last year, with more than half being potentially violent.

"We can find in almost all parts of the extremist far right the hostile attitude towards the Jews … this is a development that we have to take, very, very, very seriously," said German Interior Minister Horst Zehofer.

He warned that the extreme right considered migrants, Muslims and politicians also as enemies.
