The Nordic Resistance Movement (NRM) launched a series of focused campaigns against Jewish communities in Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Iceland throughout the week leading up to Yom Kippur.
Images were published on the organisation’s webpage showing deliberate confrontations in front of synagogues and the affixing of antisemitic posters to public spaces. It has been reported that such incidents occurred in almost twenty cities.
Leaflets attacking religious customs were also circulated outside synagogue services. In Norrköping, Sweden, for example, one was found to highlight the long-standing trope that Jews pursue “proactive forgiveness for all the lies and injustices that they will commit until the next Yom Kippur.”
The NRM stated that the campaign was organised over Yom Kippur in an active attempt to “make the Nordic people aware of foreign customs and Zionist ruling plans throughout the Nordic region.”
The recent campaigns in the Nordic countries follow Finland’s Supreme Court’s decision to maintain a ban of the neo-Nazi group.
