Is it safe to wear a Star of David necklace in Europe?

Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands (Holland), and Great Britain are considered some of the least anti-Semitic nations in the world. Because of this, they are probably the safest countries in Europe for a Jew (or non-Jew) to wear a Star of David necklace in public. In general though, it would really depend upon which local areas within each European nation one plans to visit. Why? Because the most dangerous areas would be where a large percentage of Muslim immigrants reside. This is true throughout most of continental Europe. So if a traveler is careful enough to avoid the various different urban neighborhoods and regional districts where there is a high percentage of Muslims, a Jewish (or non-Jewish) tourist could probably travel around wearing a Star of David with little to no risk at all. Since the rural areas of Europe are relatively free of Muslim immigrants, they would also be the least dangerous places for a Jew to wear the Star of David openly in public.

Unfortunately, anti-Semitism is once again on the rise in Europe after experiencing historical lows in the decades following World War II. Indeed, the many nations of Europe were, in fact, put to shame about their centuries of Jew-hating after the gruesome details of the Nazi Holocaust became available to the public. For many years the European people made a special effort to educate the younger generations about the undeniably evil atrocities committed by Nazi Germany against the Jewish people. Tragically, the youth of Europe see World War II as the distant past that has nothing to do with them. In addition, the virulent hatred of Jews that many Muslim immigrants have brought with them to Europe rubs off on those citizens that would normally be quite tolerant towards the Jews.

So is it safe enough in Europe for a person to wear a Star of David around their neck? Probably not in Muslim neighborhoods, and when it comes to places without any Muslims, it is still not near as safe as it used to be.

Is it safe to wear a Star of David necklace in London?

Generally speaking, you should be fine wearing a Star of David necklace in London, but I would avoid wearing it in Muslim-majority areas (like Edgeware Road or some districts in East London) to prevent attracting unwanted attention.

Which are some of the most visited tourist attractions for children in London?

London is a great idea, since this city is filled with an abundance of options especially for children below 10. Among the most popular ones, an attraction that stands out is surely Madame Tussaud's wax museum. Not only kids, but also adults will enjoy time spent here. Another attraction is the London Eye. A ride on this gigantic ferris wheel is surely a great family experience and offers several opportunities to capture a photograph and seal the memory for a lifetime.

Other ideas: the Science museum and the Natural History museum are always popular,as is Regent's Park zoo. The Tower of London is iconic. A ride on the docklands railway, which is pilotless may appeal. The London wetlands centre at Barnes is an oasis of wildlife with planned activities for children. The London Dungeon is popular, but scary.
