Swedish Jews reportedly converting to Christianity to avoid antisemitism

Corinne Sjöberg, an Israeli ex-patriot who serves on the city council of Umeå in Sweden has told Ynet that she has met Jews who converted to Christianity to avoid antisemitism. She told the story of a Jewish boy who was forced to pull down his trousers at school in order to prove he was Jewish and was seriously traumatised. Sjöberg says her own daughter was harassed by a teacher, and it took a year until he was removed from his position. Sjöberg wears a Star of David necklace and carries sanitary wipes with her because people spit at her. This week the Jewish community was not invited to Umeå’s Kristallnacht memorial due to “safety” reasons.
