In a spate of anti-Semitic incidents in Western Europe, a Jewish lawmaker in France received hate mail telling her to “get ready for the camps.”

Yaël Braun-Pivet, a Jewish lawmaker of the LREM centrist party of President Emmanuel Macron, on Thursday shared on Twitter an anti-Semitic hate mail that she received in her private email.

In addition to referencing death camps, the author wrote “This time, it’s the Muslims who will deal with you.” Also, “Jews can no longer come into some neighborhoods. Within two generations it will be whole cities. Demography determines laws.”


Replete with threats and insults, it also evoked international Jewish financial conspiracies.

In response, Parliament member Yael Braun-Pivet posted: “Faced with such filth: denounce, file a complaint, never let anything go.”

National Assembly members come to the defense of Yael Braun-Pivet, whose family came to France to flee the Nazis in the 1930s.
