Panel Discussion on Causes and Manifestations of Antisemitism Among Muslims in Germany (in German; with Video Recording)

We discuss with political, academic, and practical experts which manifestations of Antisemitism among Arab migrants and Muslims in Germany exist, what causes they have, which counterstrategies are already being tested in practice and which further strategies may be necessary.
