Clear stance on antisemitism

VfL signs IHRA working definition.

Ten days on from the 2022 diversity matchday, VfL Wolfsburg has reaffirmed its commitment to a tolerant society and anti-discrimination. On Monday 2 May, VfL managing director Michael Meeske signed the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA)’s working definition of antisemitism and antigypsyism in theory and in practice, underlining the club’s commitment to diversity, humanity and openness, and against discrimination.

Methodical training to combat antisemitism

The signing took place as part of a workshop with Makkabi Deutschland at the AOK Stadion. In addition, a visit by representatives from Bergen-Belsen, the Per Mertesacker Foundation and the theatre director Eyal Lerner rounded off the day. On Friday 6 May, VfL will implement their next project against antisemitism, as "Meet a Jew" will make a stop at the Heinrich Nordhoff comprehensive school in Wolfsburg.
