Reading and discussion “We won’t let them get us down” – Young Jewish politics in Germany
Reading by the authors Monty Ott and Ruben Gerczikow
Many young Jews have courageously spoken out time and again in the past. They have fought for what they think is right and what they believe in. They have fought for their vision of a just society. Today, at least 25,000 of them between the ages of 18 and 35 live in Germany. In view of the virulent threat of anti-Semitism, their commitment in the most diverse areas of our society is anything but self-evident. But who are these young people who are speaking out? What drives them? How does their political commitment relate to their Jewish identity? Monty Ott and Ruben Gerczikow compile a kaleidoscope of Jewish identities that contradicts the cultural memory of Jews as passive victims. They allow young and Jewish people to have their say and offer them a forum in which they report on their diverse political commitment and their struggles.
In cooperation with the anti-Semitism commissioner André Wartmann.
