Head of German Jewish organisation warns people to avoid wearing skullcaps for their own safety

The head of Germany’s leading Jewish organisation on Tuesday warned people to avoid wearing Jewish skullcaps in major cities following a series of violent anti-Semitic attacks.

“I have to advise people to avoid showing themselves openly with a kippah in a big city setting in Germany, and to wear a baseball cap or something else to cover their head instead,” Josef Schuster, head of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, told German radio.
