Antisemitism. The Rumor about the Jews

Digital Workshop

The contempt for Jewish traditions and the rejection of Jews have a long history that has led to hatred and violence time and again. In Germany today, Jewish institutions are protected by the police. Antisemitism is a complex, sometimes elusive phenomenon. In this digital workshop, we will approach the phenomenon of “Antisemitism” by watching and evaluating film examples of topics such as “swear word,” “circumcision debate,” and “anti-Jewish images.” The film clips invite the participants to exchange, discuss, and adopt a stance on the impact and content of Antisemitism.
