German diplomat Felix Klein has been appointed the country’s first commissioner to combat anti-Semitism following a rise in such incidents in recent years.

The new anti-Semitism post was approved by German lawmakers earlier this year, following a rise in anti-Semitic protests in the country after U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. At the time, German lawmakers said anti-Semitic crimes “could still mainly be attributed to the far right, but that migration from the Middle East and North Africa had exacerbated the problem.”
