There are more than 200,000 Jews living in Germany today, including thousands of young Israelis. How has Germany progressed from the Nazis’ aim to obliterate Jewish life forever to being the country with the fastest growing Jewish community in Europe? Can Germans today accept Jews as merely fellow citizens rather than the children or grandchildren of victims? And why is philosemitism just as dangerous as antisemitism? Bringing together Germans and Jews, this fascinating documentary explores the dramatic changes in German-Jewish relationships since liberation day in 1945.
This screening will be followed by a discussion with Dr Cathy Gelbin and David Berkley QC chaired by Dr Bobby Garson.
