American Jewish organizations are concerned by the use of Nazi, anti-Semitic and Holocaust-related symbols and messages in some of the anti-lockdown protests taking place across the United States in recent days.

Several protests against the measures taken by state governors to slow the spread of the coronavirus have featured swastikas, while right-wing activists and elected officials have compared the measures taken to the Holocaust.
