Jewish association closes after Nazi threats
A Jewish association in the northern town of Umeå is shutting down after its members have been subjected to threats and attacks.
The association’s premises have been vandalised with swastika graffiti and stickers with images of Hitler, and snowballs have been thrown at the windows.
Carinne Sjöberg, the association’s spokesperson, told Swedish Radio the threats started when the association became more visible in the public eye.
It feels terrible that in 2017, I’m having to walk in my parents’ shoes – from the 1930s".
The latest incident occurred last weekend, when a member’s car was vandalised. On Sunday, the association formally decided to cancel the lease for its premises and end all activities.
