Unfortunately, we encounter subtle and overt manifestations of antisemitism in various everyday situations - not only in sports, but also in public life, social media, at work and at school. The IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) working definition provides a uniform basis for all actors in our social coexistence with regard to the perception and classification of anti-Semitic incidents.
The handbook that has now been published explains and explains the working definition of anti-Semitism and, based on various good practice examples, offers the possibility of reacting adequately to incidents. From both a Jewish and a sporting point of view, this development is of great importance. Here go straight to the manual.
Alon Meyer, President of MAKKABI Germany eV:
“In order for anti-Semitism to be combated effectively, it must be recognized and named as such. The IHRA working definition is essential for this and we are very pleased that there is now a tangible handbook that shows state and civil society actors how the IHRA definition can be put into practice. We will continue to work to ensure that the IHRA definition gains traction among amateurs and professionals alike to send a clear signal against anti-Semitism on the pitch.”
Luis Engelhardt, project manager "No place for anti-Semitism" (MAKKABI Germany eV):
"We are very pleased that after the adoption of the IHRA working definition by Borussia Dortmund and Tennis Borussia Berlin at the end of last year, a practical guide is now available on how the IHRA working definition can be put into practice in order to combat anti-Semitism in all its manifestations determined to oppose. As a Jewish sports association, we particularly welcome the fact that the focus was on the perspective of those affected and that the focus on perpetrators, which is often common in public, was avoided.”
