The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019

GOVERNMENT

Katharina von Schnurbein

European Commission coordinator on combating antisemitism

Leading German politician Katharina von Schnurbein was appointed the first European Commission coordinator on combating antisemitism in December 2015. A graduate of Bonn and Oxford universities, von Schnurbein is now in charge of coordinating government responses to the rise of antisemitism across the European Union. Among her goals is persuading all 28 EU member-states to harmonize their legal and law enforcement provisions against Holocaust denial and similar expressions of antisemitism. In a speech to the UN General Assembly in June 2018, von Schnurbein said, “Given our history, we know, when antisemitism is on the rise, something bigger is going on.” She continued, "An unholy alliance of neo-Nazis, Islamists, and far-left extremists join in believing in a Jewish conspiracy controlling governments, the economy, and the media.” (Photo: World Jewish Congress / Screenshot)
