AntisemitismHalle. One year on. Lessons for the Future (Panel)

Diskussion mit Beteiligung von Grischa Stanjek (democ.) am 1. Oktober 2020, organisiert von der European Union of Jewish Students (EUJS) und der Jüdischen Studierendenunion Deutschland (JSUD) mit Unterstützung der Aktionswochen gegen Antisemitismus (Amadeu Antonio Stiftung).

On October 9th, 2019, during the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur an armed far-right extremist attempted to enter a synagogue in the German city of Halle. After failing to enter the synagogue, he then opened fire on a passer-by and those in a nearby Turkish Kebab shop, killing two people.

In commemorating the anniversary of the 2019 Halle attack, EUJS & JSUD as part of the „Actions weeks against antisemitism in Germany“ will be hosting a virtual, online panel discussion in order to reflect on the horrors of last year and to look forward on the topics of Jewish community protection and on the rising antisemitism and far-right extremism in Europe.

We are very pleased to be hosting what will no doubt be a well-informed discussion on these important topics, with the four panelists taking part coming from a variety of backgrounds, including the top EU official on combating antisemitism, a survivor of the attack, and a practitioner of Jewish life in Germany, an expert of democracy and the rule of law and a leading researcher on far-right extremism.
