Film screening and discussion: Project of the Young Islam Conference presents satirical short film about stereotypes and affiliation. A new look at everyday discriminiation.
Dark skin, black hair, headscarf - the outer appearance is enough for many to judge a person not by his person, but by his presumed membership in a group. The young makers of the satirical short film (16 min.) "Alman Angst - a film about six everyday discriminations as you have never seen them before" have experienced such prejudices for themselves. People think in stereotypes. People with family roots in other countries are often confronted with discrimination.
The House of One Foundation is showing the film as part of its lecture series "What unites us, what divides us" and is inviting the filmmakers to a debate afterwards. The event will be moderated by Esther Hirsch.
The film was made in 2018 as part of the youth project "Medien/Dialog Machen" of the Junge Islam Konferenz . Around twenty young adults from different religious and cultural backgrounds have processed their personal experiences into a narrative about bizarre stereotypes and exaggerated fears. The project was supported by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
As a dialogue forum for young people, the Young Islam Conference takes up questions on equal coexistence in the immigration society. JIK is a project of MUTIK gGmbH and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

In times of growing anti-Semitism, the Berlin congregation of St. Peter's and St. Mary's together with Rabbi Andreas Nachama (House of One) set a sign of admonition and reconciliation. With an inter-religious prayer for peace, after more than 80 years a replica of the former Tetragram (the Hebrew name of God JHWH) is attached to the Parochial Church.
