They were punching Jewish women. It’s Nazi Germany all over again. Shoah survivors in Germany must be in agony. Thank Gd there is an Israel to flee to.

Israeli film festival attendees in Berlin
According to the police notice reviewed by The Jerusalem Post, the BDS activists punched two women, who filed criminal complaints against them.
By Benjamin Weinthal, Jerusalem Post, September 9, 2019:
The German police said that a group of BDS activists violently assaulted visitors at the Israeli Seret International film festival on Sunday in Berlin, causing injuries and disrupting a podium discussion. An estimated 10-12 BDS activists participated in the disruption and attacks.
According to the police notice reviewed by The Jerusalem Post, the BDS activists punched two women, who filed criminal complaints against the BDS supporters. BDS is the abbreviation for the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions campaign targeting the Jewish state. The German parliament classified BDS as antisemitic in May.
The police report said after the screening of the documentary film “King Bibi,” a question and answer discussion was planned with the director and a 42-year-old started to scream. At the same time, a second 42-year-old man and a third unknown person held a poster in front of the film screen. It is unclear what was written on the poster. The discussion could not continue after the disruption.
A 62-year-old man, who organized the evening film presentation, called on the three men to leave the event. The BDS activists refused to leave the cinema. A 54-year-old manager of the cinema attempted to force the activists out of the building.
The police said all participants were released after showing identification. The Green Party politician, Volker Beck, wrote on Twitter on Sunday: “When BDS violently attacks everything that is Israeli, it is time the rule of law shows where the borders are. That’s not criticism, that’s violence.” Beck urged Berlin’s police to take a more aggressive posture toward BDS.
Last year, two BDS activists disrupted the presentation of an Israeli Holocaust film in Berlin, prompting Israeli security officials to evict the protesters as the audience booed the stoppage caused by the BDS people. Ronnie Barkan, whose conduct Berlin’s intelligence agency classified as antisemitic, was one of the activists who disrupted the Holocaust flm festival at the time.
Barkan, who rejects the existence Israel, stormed an Israel event at Humboldt University in 2017. At least three highly aggressive pro-BDS activists lashed out at Israeli survivor of the Holocaust Deborah Weinstein and MK Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) at the Humboldt University event. The event had been titled, “Life in Israel – Terror, Bias and the Chances for Peace.”
