A Jew in Neukölln:
My Path to Coexistence of Religions

Audio recording: Reading and Discussion as Part of the New German Stories Series (in German)

Committed, pugnacious, and at home in Neukölln – the theology student and journalist Ármin Langer presents his first book at the Jewish Museum Berlin. In it he tells of Jewish life in his district, where few Jews and many Muslims live. He promotes Muslim-Jewish dialogue with his Salaam-Shalom initiative, of whose successes and false starts he reports with refreshing openness.

Through his book and his commitment, Langer also counteracts those voices that regard the Muslim influence in Neukölln with concern and question the safety of Jews in the neighborhood.

A personal appeal, an invitation for discussion.

Moderator: Alina Gromova, Jewish Museum Berlin
