Germany has spent generations atoning for the sins of the Holocaust just to import a fresh batch of anti-Semites.
German police are investigating an assault on two young men in Berlin, in which the attacker was filmed shouting anti-Semitic abuse.
The men say they were harassed in the Prenzlauer Berg area on Monday while wearing Jewish skullcaps (kippahs).
A video of the incident, which was later shared on Facebook, shows the attacker hitting the men with his belt.
He is heard shouting “Yahudi”, an Arabic word for Jew, before being dragged away by another man.
One of the victims, a 21-year-old Israeli called Adam, then reportedly followed the attacker but gave up after a glass bottle was thrown at him.
