Description:
One hundred years ago, the Weimar Republic brought full democracy to Germany and guaranteed equal rights for all Germans, including German Jews. Thus began a golden age for German Jewry. Yet, at the same time, German democracy was threatened by extremism from the Left and Right, and Jews faced increased anti-Semitism. Jay Geller's lecture explores how Jews were regarded by their non-Jewish compatriots, and how both the organized Jewish community and individual Jews reacted to rhetoric that called into question their place in German society. The panel discussion that follows addresses whether we can draw any conclusions from this chapter in history about our own era - and if so, what we can do.
