The Upsurge of Antisemitism and The Future of Jewish Life in Europe
The Upsurge of Antisemitism and The Future of Jewish Life in EuropeSunday, March 15, 2015 - 7:00 pm
Antisemitism in many European countries is on the rise. Despite condemnations by top leaders, there has been little political action taken in response. The situation is fueling concern within Jewish communities, particularly amongst young people, about their future in Europe. Deidre Berger, Director of AJC Berlin’s Ramer Institute, discussed the challenges, concerns, and future options for Jews living in Europe today.
Deidre Berger is the Director of the AJC Berlin / Ramer Institute for German-Jewish Relations and a frequent lecturer on European security affairs, German-Jewish relations, and issues of extremism. Prior to joining AJC, Ms. Berger worked as a foreign correspondent. She reported on European affairs for NPR, Deutsche Welle (the German international radio and television service), the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, and the Christian Science Monitor.
This program was part of the Solomon Goldman Lecture Series, generously endowed by Rose and the late Sidney Shure.
