Sweden’s main organisation for Jews is appealing a police decision to grant the neo-Nazi Nordic Resistance Movement (NRM) permission to stage a march near a synagogue in Gothenburg on September 30, according to the Swedish paper The Local.
The march is set not only to pass near the synagogue, but also to fall on the same day as the major holy Jewish holiday Yom Kippur – a day of atonement observed by fasting and prayer.
‘It’s the day of the year when many Jews who normally don’t go to the synagogue will gather there. On this day, the police have decided to grant the neo-Nazi Nordic Resistance Movement permission to march through Gothenburg, no more than a stone’s throw away from the synagogue,’ Aron Verständig, chairman of The Official Council of Swedish Jewish Communities, and Allan Stutzinky, chairman of the Jewish Community in Gothenburg, wrote in an opinion piece inpost was originally published on this site
