Archbishop Justin Welby has denounced “the profound evil of antisemitism” as faith leaders marked the mark the 80th anniversary of the Wannsee Conference.

Addressing a symposium in Berlin in a video message, the Archbishop said: “For centuries, antisemitism has been like a volcano in European culture, from time to time erupting with absolute destruction, but always emitting noxious and terrible gases which have poisoned the atmosphere, both in Europe and around the world.”

He warned: “We must constantly be vigilant against the first signs of an eruption coming. We can never ever tolerate any antisemitism. There is no acceptable level of antisemitism.”
