The head of the Central Council of Jews in Germany Josef Schuster urged to make anti-Semitism a Central theme of integration courses for refugees. On Monday, April 24, reports The Local.
According to him, many asylum-seekers coming to Germany, “come from countries that hate Jews and Israel.”
“Perhaps there is a sense in which they visited a concentration camp or the Jewish Museum in Berlin,” said he, adding that “those who think that integration can be completed in two years, profoundly mistaken”.
“Remembering the integration of Jewish migrants from the USSR in the early 1990s, I can say that the final integration of asylum seekers is achieved only after one or even two generations”, concluded Schuster.
Migration crisis in Europe in 2015, most notably hit Germany. During the year the country was visited by over a million asylum-seekers. As noted by Deutsche Welle, in 2016, the number of migrants has decreased significantly, amounting to several hundred thousand people.
