A recent study released by the European Union Fundamental Rights Agency concludes that Jews across Europe fear rising anti-semitism today across the region. Germany is currently commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Kristallnacht pogroms, during which Nazi gangs burned down synagogues, smashed shops and looted residences across Germany and Austria in a fury of anti-semitic violence in 1938. Persecution of Jews was a central component of Adolf Hitler's rise to power. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
