Due to the wars in Syria and Iraq, as well as other conflicts in Asia and Africa, Germany took in more than 1 million migrants in 2015 and 2016, fundamentally reshaping the country. While the migration has significantly slowed in 2017 to around 200,000, Germany has been grappling with backlash from anti-immigration political parties and the threat of Islamic terrorism.

At the same time, in the German Jewish community — which stands at approximately 100,000 people, its largest size since World War II — fears are growing that migration from Muslim countries with long histories of anti-Semitism might prompt a reversal of Germany’s confrontation of its anti-Semitic past, as well as its strong relationship with Israel.
