Antisemitism reporting platform launched by the Polish Jewish Community
The Jewish Association Czulent launched an online reporting platform on antisemitic hate crimes and hate speech reporting in Poland.
It is the first reporting platform in Poland developed and operated by and for the Jewish community.
The online platform enables reporting, collecting, analysing and processing data on antisemitic hate incidents, crimes, and hate speech, including cross-discrimination.
It is formed using recognised definitions, like the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) Working Definition of Antisemitism.
The methodology is based on international standards for hate crime reporting, including the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights.
The Jewish Association Czulent, in cooperation with the Warsaw Jewish Community, created a system that strengthens groups exposed to antisemitic attacks.
The website allows victims and witnesses to report antisemitic incidents.
The website also provides information on what hate crimes and hate speech are; how to report an antisemitic offence to the police; and offers information on available psychological and legal help.
The platform is in Polish but will soon be available in English and, consequently, in Ukrainian and Hebrew.
The data collected via the platform will be analysed and used to draft reports to show antisemitism in Poland experienced by the Polish Jewish community, strengthening its voice in conversation with local authorities and law enforcement.
