A Jewish man in Aachen, Germany, was on his way home from prayer services at his synagogue when two men in the street began to make loud comments about his appearance.
The Jewish man was wearing a hat and suit, which the two allegedly drunk men repeatedly commented on, saying “But, oh well, look at this one – a Jew”. One of the men turned to the other and asked “Can we set him on fire? Can we set him on fire?” several times, his friend responded that he had “no idea” and told his companion to continue walking.
Though other people were present to witness this incident, nobody attempted to stop the two men.
