After the attack on a Berlin rabbi over a hundred people in Charlottenburg staged a spontaneous demonstration protesting against anti-Semitism. In the so-called flash mob participants moved silently from the Fasanenstraße to KaDeWe department store on the Kurfürstendamm. A majority of the protesters wore it the traditional Jewish head covering.
Police said they were notified of the event shortly beforehand. "But everything remained peaceful," said a spokesman. On Facebook, the organizers had called for the action. "We do not want people on our streets are attacked because they identify themselves as visibly Jewish," they wrote on their website.
Last Wednesday, the rabbi was in the Schöneberg district of Berlin surrounded by several young people, beaten and insulted.
