Belgian Daily Runs Cartoon Seen to Label Jewish Neighborhood ‘Coronavirus Village’

Vultures fly over a Jewish man in Antwerp, Belgium in a caricature from August 7, 2020 that critics say is anti-Semitic

August 16, 2020

The Aug. 7 drawing in Le Soir by artist Pierre Kroll, who has fought off allegations of anti-Semitism for several previous drawings, shows a tourist bus under the title “Go Visit Antwerp.” An Orthodox Jewish man is cycling nearby without wearing a face mask, several of which are seen on the ground around the bus. A speech balloon above the bus driver reads: “After the zoo, we’ll go tour ‘Coronavirus Village’.”
