Tietz Lecture on Addressing Antisemitism
Antisemitism never went away in Germany. Now, it resurges – both covertly and increasingly in public. The intensifying antisemitic hate speech is also followed by acts of violence: In Germany, between 2017 and 2019, the antisemitic acts of violence doubled (Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution; 2020). The pianist Igor Levit and the author Lena Gorelik will discuss about Antisemitism in Germany today – and the actions that need to be taken now.
With How to Fix Democracy, we unravel the fragile state of our democracies in Europe and the United States.
We connect passionate people.
