Anti-Semitism on the rise in Germany as Jewish business owners and students are targeted online

From Fox News:
Israeli restaurant owner, Yorai Feinberg, felt welcome in Berlin. Then he began to receive dozens of anti-Semitic hate emails. 
“Jews will land in gas chambers,” they said. The emails were all signed “Ludwig Fischer,” the pseudonym of one of Hitler’s most notorious Nazi henchmen. Feinberg is one of the many victims of surging anti-Semitism in Germany. 
In June, a Jewish high school student at Berlin’s low-crime Friedenauer district was bullied, with swastikas left on his desk. 
He was subjected to a mock execution. His parents transferred him to a Jewish school. Weeks later, 16 pre-schools and day care centers in Munich received letters with swastikas and threats against the children, calling them “biological waste.” 
Anti-Semitic content on the Internet has jumped from 7.5 percent to over 30 percent in the decade between 2007 and 2018, according to a newly released study by Monica Schwarz-Friesel, a professor of cognitive science at the Technical University in Berlin and an expert on anti-Semitism. The study shows that anti-Semitism permeates mainstream German society.
