RIAS, an antisemitism watchdog based in Germany, has received a report that several members of staff at a children’s daycare centre in Tempelhof-Schöneberg, Berlin regularly make remarks, some extremist, against Jews, Muslims, Sinti and Roma.
The group of staff are alleged to have called circumcision “culturally archaic” and said that “that bunch of immigrants” should “adjust to the standards of a German kindergarten”. The staff were reported to be unmoved by the presence of swastika graffiti within the kindergarten. Antisemitic graffiti within the surrounding area is noted to be a regular occurrence.
This is the second kindergarten in Berlin reported as a site of antisemitism by RIAS in the last month.
