Outcry as Jews create own group in German far-right party


October 7, 2018

BERLIN (AP) — Jewish members of the far-right Alternative for Germany party, or AfD, met in the southwestern German city of Wiesbaden on Sunday to create a Jewish section within the party — a move that drew strong condemnation from other Jews.

Nineteen people joined the new "Jews in the AfD" group, local media reported.

Some 250 people protested against the Jewish AfD group in nearby Frankfurt.
