She no longer wants the police in front of her children’s school
Susan Sideropoulos speaks about anti-Semitism: The Jewish woman wishes that the police would no longer have to stand in front of her children’s school.
Susan Sideropoulos (41) speaks openly about anti-Semitism in an interview. The children of the “GZSZ” star go to a Jewish school. “I wish that the police would no longer have to stand in front of my children’s school,” the actress explains to “Bild am Sonntag”. Unfortunately, these are “facts to which we are at the mercy”. “And as long as I have to think about whether I should be scared if my children walk in the street with a Star of David, we have a problem,” she adds.
“As long as there is anti-Semitism, we will not live carefree here”
She has been married to her husband Jakob Shtizberg since 2005. The two have sons Joel (* 2010) and Liam (* 2011). Until two years ago it was “completely normal” for her children to have the police standing in front of their school. This was not an issue in the family for a long time, “because I refuse to raise my children in fear,” said Sideropoulos. “It’s only now that my kids have cell phones and internet access that they learn a lot more things.”
The actress recently made a similar statement in an interview with the news portal “t-online.de”. Sideropoulos would be “better off” if the police weren’t necessary in front of their children’s school. “It’s not that I live with fear,” she said. The 41-year-old feels “very much at home in Germany”. “Nonetheless, I do not want to close my eyes to the fact that this problem exists. As long as there is anti-Semitism, we will not live carefree here,” she said.
