Statement from Chargé d’Affaires Robin Quinville
October 5, 2020

Chargé d’Affaires Robin Quinville: We condemn in the strongest possible terms the assault which took place Sunday evening outside a synagogue in Hamburg. Anti-Semitism is a vile poison that must be confronted and rejected wherever and whenever it occurs.  The fight against anti-Semitism isn’t only about protecting the Jewish community in Germany.  It’s also about standing for the freedom to worship, one of the values we share.
