As RIAS Hessen, the Office on Research and Information on Antisemitism in Hessen (Recherche- und Informationsstelle Antisemitismus Hessen), we are primarily dedicated to supporting those affected by antisemitic incidents and to documenting and analyzing antisemitism in Hessen. We offer support and guidance reporting antisemitic incidents, provide further assistance for counseling, and aim at ensuring the consistent recording and documentation of antisemitic incidents by civil society throughout the region.
Offering an initial point of contact for victims, relatives and acquaintances thereof, as well as witnesses and people who have otherwise been made aware of antisemitic incidents, our key principle of operation is confidentiality. You alone decide what happens to your shared information. Verified incidents are systematized and evaluated. With your explicit consent the incident will be published in our chronicle. We also document selected incidents on our social media platforms.
Antisemitic incidents can vary widely, they can range from stickers or graffiti in the streets to threats of physical violence, either digitally or personally, or even direct physical attacks.
We record these incidents and report annually on developments in Hessen, proactively monitor potential antisemitic events and engage in the research on antisemitism as well as educational projects in order to uncover and better keep track of antisemitism today.
Have you witnessed an antisemitic incident or are you affected yourself? — Then please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
Considering the data protection of your information, your report will be registered using the form used by all RIAS offices: It is forwarded to the registration form of the Federal Association for Research and Information on Antisemitism (Bundesverband RIAS e.V.).
Each report helps us combat antisemitism.
